High profile cases of children in Saskatchewan's foster care system, before Goforth trial

 


The high profile court case of Kevin and Tammy Goforth, where a jury found the two guilty in the death of a four-year-old girl and of causing bodily harm to her younger sister, was not the first case to negatively reflect the province's social services system.

During the testimony a child protection worker said the girls lived in seven different homes before they were moved to the Goforth's home. After the jury's decisions were read, Kevin Goforth's lawyer told reporters that social services "attempted to deflect responsibility for how they treated these children throughout their young lives."
