MIAMI - A grand jury has accused Department of Children and Families administrators of "intentionally and deliberately" manipulating investigations into child abuse and death to make it appear few Florida children were dying.
The agency's interim secretary Mike Carroll says it's clear the grand jury understands the challenges faced by DCF.
The report referenced a Herald series called Innocents Lost that concluded DCF had revised its definition of "neglect," resulting in an artificial number of deaths.
