8 lawsuits have been filed against DSS, drug testing company Accurate Diagnostics, and owner of the Laurens County branch, Lynn Craig.
In those lawsuits 8 families outline their time in jail, loss of jobs, and loss of children because of hair sample drug test results given by Lynn Craig.
Attorney Laura Saunders of Laurens recently filed a lawsuit on behalf of clients whose child was taken because of those test results, that child died days later in a house fire, while in foster care.
DSS states that during 2015, Lynn Craig was not sending hair samples to 3rd party testing company Omega Labs, and instead falsifying drug test results and turning them in to DSS.
During that time, lawsuits allege that several parents were jailed solely on the fact that their child’s hair tests showed drug results.
The SLED investigation is ongoing into the actions of Craig.
