Man with juvenile sex crime history was licensed as foster parent, abused more kids

SEATTLE — Richard Jason Boothby is now spending 18 years behind bars for child rape and molestation after sexually abusing at least three foster children in his care.

The abuse happened over the course of a year, starting in May 2009, when the state Department of Social and Health Services placed a 4-year-old boy in Boothby’s Shoreline home, despite Boothby’s juvenile criminal record for molesting young children.

In 1988, when he was 15, Boothby had pleaded guilty to indecent liberties and was sent to Echo Glen, a state-run children’s detention center.

California juvenile law attorney Ryan McGlinn shares what you should do if your child is approached by a social worker when you're not present. Did you know they are well within their rights to speak to your child without you?

Not only can they speak to your child without you, they are allowed to undress and photograph your child to look for signs of abuse. Of course, if this is done at school an official from the school will be present with your child and the social worker. But, you're still not there.

Who Is More Powerful Than A Judge?

Before indulging in this article, keep in mind that there is no due process in child welfare as you are guilty until proven innocent while also keeping in mind that no judge wants the responsibility of making the determination of removals or termination of parental rights because it would not be a good thing for re-election campaigns.  This is why the power of the decision is beholden to Child Protective Service workers and their counterparts in foster care.
