Clinton County couple arrested for child abuse

Michigan

CLINTON COUNTY, Mich. (WLNS) — A Clinton County couple was arrested yesterday afternoon in Olive Township, just outside DeWitt, on multiple counts of child abuse.

Jerry and Tamal Flore are currently being held without bond at the Clinton County Jail, facing two first-degree charges and three second-degree charges of child abuse.

The investigation into the Flore’s couple began in July. The couple has adopted several children. At this time, we’re not exactly sure how many they have adopted.

Officials say they are still investigating, with more arrests possibly being made against the family and others.

The Flore family was involved in a case with St. Vincent Catholic Charities, in which the non-profit was trying to bar gay couples from adopting children based upon St. Vincent’s affiliation.

Anyone with information regarding this case is encouraged to call Det. Sean Dush at (989) 227-6507.
