Judge O'briant repeatedly places children back in abusive homes, one leading to the death of the child. The man in jail for killing that child. O'Briant refuses to terminate his parental rights. There are more children in danger of being placed back in abusive homes, and he does not care about the well being of the child, Even going against CPS recommendations that a child not be placed back in the homes. Please for our Children, Do something about this man.
