A Christian County grand jury has returned an indictment against a former social worker for the Cabinet for Health and Family Services.

The grand jury indicted Donna Currey, 41, on one count of tampering with public records, a Class D felony.  The charges follow an investigation by the state attorney general's Department of Criminal Investigations.

The attorney general's office says reports of abuse and neglect are assigned for investigation, after which a finding is made to substantiate or unsubstantiated the allegation. Documentation of the investigation includes a report titled a “Continuous Quality Assessment.” Currey is accused of making false entries in a “Continuous Quality Assessment” report provided to the Cabinet in an abuse case involving three-year-old Alayna Adair. 

Currey was the on-call social worker who responded to a call to the Cabinet’s Abuse Hot Line related to injuries Adair suffered on June 13, 2011. On July 3, the toddler suffered additional trauma and died at Vanderbilt Hospital in Nashville, Tenn. Adair’s father, Charles Morris, has been indicted in connection with her death.

The attorney general’s office investigated the case against Currey following a referral from the Cabinet for Health and Family Services in November of 2011. A bench warrant has been issued for Currey’s arrest and bond is set at $10,000 full cash. Prosecution of this case is being handled by the office of Lynn Pryor, Commonwealth’s Attorney for the 3rd Judicial Circuit representing Christian County.

Currey resigned her position as a social service clinician with the Cabinet in October of 2011.
