Brook Stagles started this petition to Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and

We want Child Protective Service workers Colleen Mawn-Cufari and Kelly Powlen investigated for criminal charges and a complete investigation for not doing their job, which allowed this tragedy to continue. This is happening across America!


 SEP 15, 2017 — This was Brook's living conditions. Colleen Mawn-Cufari never went into the house and inspected anything. According to Mike Stagles, Colleen Mawn-Cufari only talked to Mike at the door. She was there to inspect her bedroom and living conditions. She was there for a living quarters inspection just like at Ashlee's house and reports of Erica Bell abusing Brook. Erica Bell was not even allowed to see her own children unsupervised, according to family court and CPS. Erica Bell had a warrant for her arrest at the same time she talked to Colleen. CPS never did their job. Brook died an agonizing and horrific death for three days. When she was not alone suffering, they were dragging her all over town, to buy drugs, go to babies are us, and a baby shower. Mike and Erica did their best to hide Brook from everybody by wrapping her up in Mike's shirts constantly and applying makeup to her to cover bruises. Over a hundred people had come into contact with Brook. Some in the medical field and others, parents them selves. This was all made possible because of the blatant disregard for Brook's life that Colleen Mawn-Cufari and Kelly Powlen showed. The Judge said this house is in-humane. The house was infested with bugs like there was a dead person in there for 2-3 days. There was drug paraphernalia everywhere. A motorcycle in the living room and basement(Brooks room). Officer's said this was the worst house they had ever seen. Colleen and Kelly needs to face criminal charges for their actions, Please help. CPS is run like a business that is failing and instead of losing money they are losing children.

On November 14, 2016 in Rochester, NY Brook Stagles suddenly lost her short lived life; she was 3 years old and was beaten and suffered with internal injuries for days and later dies while she was on a visit with her biological father and his new girlfriend. Brooks death was ruled a homicide by the Coroners Office.

There have been 4 prior cases presented to CPS throughout her short lived life. There has recently been an open CPS case with suspicion of child abuse. Repeated calls from multiple people were made to CPS by many family members on Brook's mother side of the family as well as neighbors and the social worker at CPS failed to return calls even after proof was given to them . We need signatures to show government that we don't want this to happen again to another child. Brook's death was a agonizing painful one and this horrific act of violence was completely AVOIDABLE! We would like the CPS Vigorously reformed! Please sign this petition, for the safety of all our children. We are there one and only voice!

Update Rochester, NY......While Colleen Mawn-Cufari was investigating Erica
Bell, Erica Bell had a warrant for her arrest the whole time. In fact according to CPS, Erica Bell was not even allowed to see her own children unsupervised, let alone be around Brook.CPS lied.How could Colleen Mawn-Cufari not know she had a warrant for her arrest the whole time she was under investigation by CPS. Colleen Mawn-Cufari worker was told multiple times that the bruises and marks started to happen when Erica Bell came into the picture. The CPS supervisor Kelly Powlen of Monroe County Child Protective Services was also told what was going on!!

When we went to court October 31, 2016 for visitations to be documented in
court, because this was going on!! Mike Stagles waived his right for a lawyer.
The judge , my daughter Ashlee Geer and her lawyer , were all in agreement for a set court order schedule and Brooks Law Guardian Victoria Lagoe asked to reschedule because she wanted to talk to Brook first. (a 3 year old!).She said she would call us that week and never called. Brook died two weeks later.Brook suffered for 5-6 days or more with her internal agonizing injuries.  Prior to that, we talked to the father on Monday, a week before her death, and he said she had "the flu"so we believe she suffered much longer !

PLEASE HELP US HELP YOU  We need Child Protective Services reformed!!!!! Share!! Share!!! Share!!! We the people need to be a voice for our children's safety!!!!!





Please share!!!


I want to thank all of you that have signed the petition so far. We need ALOT more signatures to reach our goal, in order to help make sure that Child Protective Services can actually do their job to protect all children that need it !
Here's some facts about the number of cases of children dying from abuse. 505 substantiated deaths in New York State ALONE in 3 years is Unbearable. USA has one of the worst records of losing between 4 and 7 children a day to child abuse and neglect. Over 1800 children died in the USA last year and 70% of them were under 3 years old and it would be 30-50% higher now, because that was a 2014 statistic. 27% were avoidable. Another low number.

We need to warn the public about  Child Protective Services.
Together as a nation we can make it happen through the Justice for Brook petition.
