Toledo Father Sues
Toledo, OH -- Martina Jennings was recently sentenced to 4 years in prison after her three-month old pit bull puppy chewed off her child's foot. Now the father is suing Lucas County's Child Protection Service (CPS), claiming it's their fault this tragedy happened.
In his lawsuit, he claims he called CPS two weeks before the attack and alerted them of physical abuse. The father had found scrapes, wounds and bruises on his son. He took the boy to the hospital, where doctors suspected domestic violence as well. They completed a child abuse report, a physical assault body map and took photographs.
CPS removed the boy from the Jennings' home, but gave him back a short while before the pit bull attack.
