LA County Child Abuse Investigator Suspected Of Sexual Assault

Family services worker held on $75,000 bail

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Police say a Los Angeles County child abuse investigator has been arrested on suspicion of sexually assaulting the mother of a child he was assigned to assess.

Yadulla Eddie Lorghaba, a Department of Children and Family Services employee, was arrested Wednesday and was being held on $75,000 bail.

The Los Angeles Times reports the mother was being investigated after she was arrested for alleged shoplifting in September.

The woman told Lorghaba she would do anything to keep her child with her. She told investigators that’s when Lorghaba allegedly took her into a room and sexually assaulted her.

Police found Lorghaba’s DNA in saliva on the woman’s bra.

Lorghaba has worked for the county for 12 years.

    Hey !!…I thought that worked only at the car lot if a hot chick wanted a great price on a new car!

    Child’s mother fault, because what she told to the agent, “I do whatever to keep my child”.
    Agent fault, because felt on duty responsibilities and professionalism!!!

    A bad mother will not say “I will do anything to keep my child”.
    These case workers have power and will and can say and do anything to exercise that power.
