DCS case manager charged for making false reports

A Tennessee Department of Children's Services case manager is facing multiple charges after investigators determined she made up false reports during a child abuse investigation. 

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation began looking into allegations against Brenna Elizabeth Cervino in October 2015, according to a TBI release.  

Investigators determined Cervino, 44, filed false reports during a child abuse investigation that led to children being removed from a home. 

She was indicted Thursday by the Jefferson County Grand Jury on two counts of Official Oppression, three counts of Official Misconduct, one count of filing a false report and one count of falsifying a government record. Last week, a Sevier County Grand Jury also returned an indictment charging her with one count of filing a false report.  

Cervino turned herself in Thursday afternoon and was booked into the Jefferson County Jail on a $10,000 bond.
