Social worker says he warned about Denver couple

DENVER (AP) - A former social worker who helped remove three children from the home of a Denver couple now charged with child abuse says he tried to prevent them from being allowed to raise additional children.

Lorinda Bailey and Wayne Sperling lost their three eldest children after they were removed from their squalid apartment in 2006. A baby they were expecting then and another one that followed were taken care of by a foster family but later returned. They are among the four boys removed from the same apartment last month.

Nathan O'Neal told The Denver Post he warned officials then that Bailey and Sperling weren't capable of parenting. He wasn't the case worker for the two babies and so doesn't know about why they were returned. Officials wouldn't comment, citing confidentiality laws.
