Child protective investigator arrested for allegedly falsifying records
A child protective investigator has been arrested for allegedly falsifying records.
According to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, 44-year-old Jason Kent, a former Department of Children and Families child protective investigator, falsified records of face-to-face interviews on seven different child endangerment cases from December of 2014 to April of 2015.
The Department says Kent recorded that he conducted these interviews, however, the subjects in these cases noted they had never seen Kent before, nor had they ever spoken with him.
Kent has been arrested and booked into the Jackson County Jail.
