Woman: Social worker forced her into sex

June 7, 2011 at 5:49 PM   |   Comments

MILWAUKEE, June 7 (UPI) -- A Milwaukee woman has sued Wisconsin welfare agencies and the caseworker she says made her pregnant and then ordered her to have an abortion.

In a complaint filed Monday in federal court, Theola Nealy said the caseworker, Peter Nelsen, took her baby daughter after she refused to end the pregnancy and has refused to relinquish custody, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported. She said her two older children were also taken away from her in retaliation.

"Nelsen was assigned to protect the most vulnerable among us, and he preyed upon them," Nealy's lawyer, Joy Bertrand, said.

The lawsuit charges Nelsen coerced Nealy into sex in 2007 while he was investigating a report she had abused or neglected her children. It says the report was initially determined to be unfounded but her children were taken away soon after she refused to have the abortion he demanded.

Nelsen, the state Department of Children and Families and the Bureau of Milwaukee Child Welfare, which is operated by the state agency, are named as defendants.
