Child abuse and neglect cases are on the rise

(WDAY TV) - A Cass County Deputy has made a startling observation. He says the number of child abuse, and neglect cases are on the rise. Not only does he find it disturbing, but he doesn't know why it's happening. It's Damon Job's 20th year with the Cass County Sheriff's Department. He's seen a lot in his years of service, now he's seeing something that doesn't sit well with him: a steady rise of child abuse and neglect cases.
