New Inquiry Into Iowa Social Worker’s Conduct Case

Law Books

Mason City, Iowa – A prosecutor will request a review to determine if an Iowa social worker should be charged with a crime for giving false testimony in child welfare cases.

Cerro Gordo County Attorney Carlyle Dalen says he’ll refer the case involving former Iowa Department of Human Services employee Chelsie Gray to another agency for investigation.

A judge in June found Gray told “lies and misrepresentations” during a proceeding. The parents stripped of their rights to four children.

She falsely claimed she routinely visited the family as required and spoke to the children’s teachers.
