Six Children Removed From Filthy, Unsafe Home of Former DCF Worker

(Osceola County, Florida: May 2016)Investigators removed six children from a filthy home infested with trash, feces, rotten food and infested with insects. The home is owned by parents Randy and Kysa Donawa.  Kysa was formerly employed by the Department of Children and Families as a Child Protective Investigator but since had been fired. DCF said upon hearing of Kysa’s arrest, that she was in training at the time and did not carry a caseload.

The Narcotics Enforcement Team executed a search warrant on the home and also found  26 marijuana plants, 8 grams of marijuana, counterfeit money and a handgun in the home. Randy and Kysa Donawa, were arrested and each was charged with Production of Marijuana, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia and 6 counts of Child Neglect. Both have since bonded out of the Osceola County Jail.

The children have been family members, a judge called the home “an immediate danger.”

About Emily Court

It takes "Just Us" To Fight Injustice in Family Court. I blog to raise awareness about problems existing in the family court system, and use my own story as a personal example of how the systemic failures in family court, and the Guardian ad Litem Program, affect families, in an effort to encourage needed reform. Written by a survivor of domestic violence and homelessness working to create a better life for her children, in a stable home free of violence. In her efforts to rebuild her life, she has not only encountered harassment and intimidation from her alleged abuser but faced systematic failures in family court that have empowered her alleged abuser and put her children at risk. She has spent over a decade trapped in family court until her children finally aged out of the system. Through writing and blogging, FCI is working to raise awareness about domestic violence, and the urgent need for family court reform. She is currently working on a memoir titled "'Til Prayers Are Answered".
