Director of Children`s Aid Society charged
"OPP has charged William Sweet, a resident of Picton, Ont., after allegations of wrongdoing during his work as the executive director of the Prince Edward County Children’s Aid Society between 2002 and 2010."
"Investigating cases of children placed with foster parents who themselves were convicted of child abuse, this led the OPP to look into Sweet’s involvement as executive director of the child care organization..."
"Sgt. Carolle Dionne, provincial media relations coordinator, says that although Sweet never fostered any children of his own, he is being charged because as she said, `he ought to have known better` than to place children with the foster parents who have since been convicted in child abuse cases."
"For a period of eight years, nine foster children were placed with six foster parents who have since been convicted of sexual abuse against those children."
