Family files suit against DCS for taking infant children

Parents were never charged with abuse, police say. Jose and Dawn Garcia's son, Dominic, was taken by DCS days after he was born because they were accused of abuse.

CLARKSVILLE, TENN. — Two days after Dawn Garcia gave birth, a social worker with the Department of Children’s Services arrived at the Clarksville hospital and told the shocked new mom to hand over her son.

At the time, the 22-year-old mother and her husband, Jose Garcia, a Fort Campbell infantryman, were under investigation for abusing their 21-month-old daughter — an accusation the couple vehemently denied.
