I don't know if you can do anything, but I feel better knowing that I am making contact in hopes it might stop future abuse from happening. I live in Spring TX. I have a 4 year old son and an 8 year old son. From October 5 2009 until October 19th 2010, we had a nanny working for us. She was hired thru a nanny agency and was perfect for my boys. However, things changed and she was fired October 19th 2010 after I set up a camera and recorded 10 hours worth of video of this woman with my children. The video revealed this woman sleeping on the couch for hours and leaving my then 3 yr old son completely unattended, ignoring my children, screaming, yelling, name calling, spanking, lying to us about the events of the day and excusing herself to my bedroom to relieve herself of sexual frustrations. She was reported to the nanny service I hired her from, who removed her from their database and vowed never to list her again, and to Child Protective Services here in the Harris county area. The CPS worker that I filed the report with told me that the State of Texas could not file charges against her because she didn't physically leave the property and there was no bruising on my sons. They could however list on her background checks that she has been flagged as an abuser. He explained that this would prevent her from working with children again in a job that did a background check i.e. daycare centers, school districts, and nanny agencies and if by chance she was with any of those places already a random background check would also reveal this information and she would be fired. It wouldn't however prevent her from taking a job watching her neighbors kids where a background check might not be done. I felt I was able to protect some children from future abuse.
I recently found out she will be moving from Texas to Colorado and is looking to finish her early education degree and go back to working as a nanny or in a day care center until her education is complete. I contacted the CPS office again worried that more children might now be in danger. I was informed by Texas CPS, Child Care Licensing, and Background Department that this flag will not transfer from state to state. It needed to be criminal charges in order to prevent her from hurting anymore kids, which I was informed in December the State of Texas was not going to do.
I feel totally helpless here and want to warn everyone of this woman, Brittani H****, in hopes that should she apply with their agency, maybe just maybe they will refuse her. I know this could be looked at as just heresay, but I would want someone to inform me if they knew something that wouldn't show up on a background check. I don't know where in Colorado she is moving, just that she is moving in with her boyfriends sister in Colorado. I have her name and social security number as well as her TX Drivers License number, if it is needed. I hope some prevention of future child abuse can be done. Thank you.
