ART BRACKE, THE PIED PIPER OF MIDDLESEX COUNTY by Wes Fager

He was Virginia's longest serving CPS worker who molested a little boy just months after leaving his job. Now he's going up the river for 34 years.

For over 20 years Arthur Rudolf Bracke (pronounced brock) was the sole CPS (child protective service) officer for Middlesex County, Virginia making him the most tenured CPS worker in the entire state. Bracke's supervisor retired in 2005 and was replaced by E. William Geneisse in Jan. 2006. Strangely, with all the years experience Bracke had had in dealing with children, one of the first things Geneisse did was to move Bracke to adult protective services. The papers say that Bracke retired at the end of July 2007. Three months later he molested a boy under 13 in his care at his (Bracke's) home. Bracke met the child through his mother who has had professional dealings with Bracke through his work prior to his retirement. continued
