DANDRIDGE (WATE) – A Tennessee Department of Children’s Services employee is facing charges in both Jefferson and Sevier counties.

Thursday, the Jefferson County Grand Jury returned indictments charging Brenna Elizabeth Cervino, 33, with 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 Country Grand Jury also returned an indictment charging Cervino with one count of filing a false report.

Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said special agents began investigating the case in October 2015 at the request of the Fourth District Attorney General James Dunn. Special agents determined Cervino filed false reports during a child abuse investigation where the child was removed from the home.

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