A former foster parent has been indicted for rape and gross sexual imposition after investigators say she sexually assaulted children in her care.
A Hamilton County grand jury has indicted Barbara Brooks, 62, on 15 counts of rape and three counts of gross sexual imposition. If convicted of all charges, she faces the possibility of spending the rest of her life in prison.
Brooks is charged with sexually assaulting four different children she babysat between January 1, 2000 and February 27, 2007. The sexual assaults are alleged to have occurred in her homes in Mt. Healthy and Springfield Township.
In April of 2011 two of the victims disclosed to the police that Brooks had sexually abused them while they were in her care. This started a police investigation that resulted in the indictment.
According to the Hamilton County Prosecutor's Office, Brooks worked as a licensed foster parent for the Ohio Department of Jobs and Family Services from July 1996 to December 2008. She was terminated as a foster parent in 2008 when JFS and the Hamilton County Sheriff's Department investigated allegations of sexual abuse. The charges could not be substantiated so no criminal charges resulted from that investigation.
"These cases are always difficult to comprehend. We are glad that the victims had the courage to come forward so that we can make sure that Brooks is never in a position to care for children again," said Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters.
