CPS worker fired after allegedly telling 14-year-old girl to become a prostitute

A Texas Child Protective Services worker lost her job after allegedly telling a 14-year-old girl to become a prostitute.

Keisha Bazley, a Texas mother of nine who turned to CPS to help with her 14-year-old daughter, told FOX 26 Houston that her child ran away and was causing trouble at school, prompting her to stop family service to call

“My daughter told me that the worker told her to do these things, so she said she decided to film them,” Bazley said.

CPS places the girl in a hotel, along with dozens of other foster children in Harris County.

The video allegedly shows an exchange between the teenager and a CPS worker who reportedly tells the girl to be a prostitute.

“And giving her an inducement and almost a threat that her needs won’t be met if she doesn’t do what this woman told her very specifically,” family attorney Mike Schneider told FOX 26 after watching the video.

“As a parent, if I did that to my kid, I would get spanked,” Bazley said. “I would be called a terrible parent. I would lose my children.”

Bazley filed an official complaint with CPS. The agency’s commissioner, Jamie Masters, reportedly traveled to Houston from the Lone Star State capital to apologize to Bazley and her daughter.

“That shouldn’t happen to girls in their care,” she said. “This must not happen. It’s unacceptable.”

“I’ve never seen the commissioner of CPS walk in from Austin just to apologize for something horrible that was done to a child related to CPS,” Schneider said. “It’s bad enough if it’s just one bad rogue worker. It worries me that it could be bigger and they have to make sure it’s not just one person and they have to find a way to protect these children.”

In a statement to FOX 26, Texas Department of Family and Protective Services spokeswoman Melissa Lanford said, “DFPS is aware of the video and has taken action. The person in the video – who was employed as a CPS support staff – was fired from his position on August 10. The safety and appropriateness with which children in care are to be treated is our primary concern. Less will not be tolerated.”
