POJOAQUE, N.M. (KRQE) - A Children Youth and Families worker on leave after a boy under her watch died last week, has been accused of abuse herself in the past.
The Santa Fe New Mexican reports CYFD employee Gabrielle James was investigated for child abuse three times since May 2010, but none of the accusations ended with criminal charges.
James is on leave right now while investigators look into why the 3-year-old Pojoaque boy was not removed from the home of his mother and her boyfriend after an abuse complaint was filed.
