CPS Season 1, Episodes 3 “The Jackson Family”

At 19, the eldest child of the Jackson family was only forty-five pounds and starving when the New Jersey child abuse hotline was called. His large adopted family appeared to be a pillar of the community, but this was far from the truth.

Episodes 3 take a deeper look into what went wrong within the Jackson family and how it took so long for the community to take notice. Faheem Williams (season 1, episode 2) and his brothers are forever tied to the Jackson family in that the two cases happened within a short period of time from one another and were at the heart of the lawsuit that changed every aspect of how child protective services in the state of New Jersey functions.
