Child Protective Services employee arrested for indecent exposure

YORK COUNTY, SC (WBTV) -

York County parents are demanding that a local child protection services worker lose his job, after he was arrested for Indecent Exposure and DWI outside a local middle school.

Derrick Hensley, 44, was arrested and charged Monday afternoon, after police found him in his vehicle in the parking lot of York Intermediate School. Several witnesses told police that Hensley urinated in front of the school, exposing himself.

According to a police report, officers found two cans of Bud Light and a can of Four Loko inside Hensley's car. The report also stated that Hensley "swayed" back and forth in front of officers.

Hensley has been employed with the Gaston County Department of Social Services (DSS) since 1998 and he's currently a social worker with Child Protection Services.

"He works with children everyday trying to keep them safe and I can't believe he's not fired," said York parent Kristen Stevens.

WBTV found out that Hensley was arrested in July 2012 for DWI. County records show he was not suspended, and even received a pay raise five days after he was arrested.

Keith Moon, the director of Gaston County DSS says he cannot specifically comment on personnel matters involving his employees.

"Personnel issues are confidential under law in North Carolina, so I cannot comment in any specific case," Moon said, adding that his office will review the facts and give Hensley due process.

"If he did something like that, he doesn't need to be around kids,"  parent John McClure said.

As of Wednesday evening, Hensley was still in jail.
