UPDATE 10/6/2017: A grand jury in Calvert County indicted Rocla Aceneth Tovar Calderon, 40, of Prince Frederick on one count each of second degree child abuse and second degree assault.

In August of 2017, a Child Protective Services Worker prepared a safety plan for Calderon, which was signed by both parties, indicating that she was not allowed to hit the child with any objects. The plan also indicated that in-home services would be provided by CPS to assist Calderon with the child’s behavior and with cleaning her home so that it is sanitary.

Calderon is scheduled to appear in Calvert County Circuit Court on October 23, and a trial date is set for January 23, 2018.

8/28/2017: On August 10, 2017, police responded to a trailer on Hallowing Point Rd, in Prince Frederick, for a report of child abuse.

Detective Jernigam from the Calvert County Sheriff’s Office and a Child Protective Services Worker from the county responded to the trailer after they received complaints that a 3-year-old boy had visible marks on his body. The complaints came from the child’s teachers at the Head Start program.

The child had marks on his chest, back, and legs that appeared to have been made by a thin cord of some type. The child’s speech and language is delayed, and he was only able to indicate his mom was mad.

Police made contact with the child’s mother, identified as Rocla Aceneth Tovar Calderon, 40, of Prince Frederick.

The Child Protective Services Worker explained they needed to speak with Calderon about the marks on he son’s arms, and Calderon stated that she hit him because she was angry because he “do a lot of things” and she “need to teach him”. Calderon went on to say that she tries not to hit him because “he’s white and it leaves marks”, which she knows is a problem, and that sometimes she has to hit him so he will learn. Calderon explained that she is having issues with potty training, destructive behavior, and that the only way she can keep him occupied is with a tablet. Calderon was asked what she hit the child with, and she said it was a cord to a tablet because he chewed it and it broke. The previous night, 8/9/2017, Calderon admitted to hitting him between 5-7 times but she was not exactly sure because she was so angry with him. Calderon then explained that she usually uses a shoe to hit him, but she had the cord in her hand, which is why she used it. Calderon said that it hurts her hand to spank him with her hand and gives her blood clots, so she uses a shoe.

The Child Protective Services Worker explained that she could not hit the child with cords and leave marks. Calderon repeatedly indicated that she cannot control his behavior, citing examples of him urinating in a basket full of clean laundry, and on the blankets on her bed. While speaking with Calderon, the child grabbed an empty water bottle, urinated inside it, and placed it on the floor near the front door. Calderon made no attempts to stop this behavior, and rather indicated that it was another example of not being able to control him “because he’s 3”.

Police described the residence as “extremely unkempt, with old food on the floor, tables, chairs, and counters. Insects were visible flying around the residence, crawling on the counters and floors. Ms. Calderon apologized for the mess and stated that it is Thursday which is her day to clean.”

The Child Protective Services Worker prepared a safety plan for Calderon, which was signed by both parties, indicating that she was not allowed to hit the child with any objects. The plan also indicated that in-home services would be provided by CPS to assist Calderon with the child’s behavior and with cleaning her home so that it is sanitary.

Rocla Aceneth Tovar Calderon, was arrested and charged with assault, and child abuse, she posted a $10,000 bail and was released. Calderon has a preliminary court date on September 22, 2017, in Calvert District Court.

    Please take some patenting classes. The trouble you’re having is because you are not teaching the child the way he needs to be taught. You will have to put more work in to raise him well. Do you really love him? Then do the work….

    he apparently has a learning disability since he cannot speak, but yet she continues to hit him, what is wrong with her, he probably has a behavior issue cause she hits him no matter what. POS, she doesn’t deserve children, Now CPS is going to give her help in cleaning her house. That kid could be dead before her hearing. You don’t think she will be taking it out on the child.

    • J on August 28, 2017 at 1:16 pm

      Abuse actually stunts language development and cognitive development, so the abuse is likely the reason he has a language and/or learning disability. She brought it upon herself

      I agree about patenting classes. I know someone that used to work for the patent office, very stressful job. Who knew? Lots of research involved to make sure that when people are trying to patent something, that it isn’t already patented. And if it is using things that are patented, sometimes they need to go back for a redesign…

If he is always yelled at and has to live in a pig stye, he knows nothing else. He needs someone to take care of him the correct way. I hope they removed him from his awful POS mom.

    This story makes me so sad. This poor 3 year old child has to suffer so much because he has a mother who probably can’t even feel love for him. Where is his father, his grandparents? Aren’t there others in his life who can see what is happening and are willing to step in here and help?
    This poor kid doesn’t stand a chance at a good life when the only one who cares about him is a Child Protective Service Worker who has to write a “safety plan” for the mother.

    I can not believe that she is going to get her child back! What is wrong with people today? That child needs to be removed for good. She has no problem telling the cops what she did and how she beat her child. What kind of POS is she? She needs the exact same thing done to her that she is doing to her own child!

  17. Lindsey on August 28, 2017 at 10:56 am

    This is beyond awful. Just think of the mental abuse this baby goes through daily. So she normally hits him with her hand or shoe because that’s ok. She needs to be beat and this child placed in a loving environment.

    CPS’ plan is wrong in so many ways. So she’s not allowed to hit the child with any objects, but she can still use her hand, or does your ‘plan’ state butt only? You’re going assist her with the child’s behavior… do you think that maybe it’s a learned behavior? And you’re going to help clean her house… WTH!!!! How about you take the child until she completes parenting classes and cleans her own house!! This is our CPS system folks…scary!

    I don’t think he has a problem potty training. He knows how to use a bottle so he should know how to use the potty. Sounds like the mother has a big problem. She should not be blaming her baby. She definitely needs to go to parenting classes. Maybe she should give him to someone that will love him. Praying for that little boy.

    This is why immigration is going to be the downfall of this country. Yes, we are a country of immigrants but there wasn’t such a cultural divide between immigrants in the past as there is with the latest wave/tsunami from south/central America. They come here seeking better lives but don’t attempt to assimilate. The same cultural issues that caused them to flee now follows them and seeds itself here. We’re screwed, we were lax for too long, the tipping point has passed. The difference in birthrates is dramatic, America will be unrecognizable in another twenty years.

    No, you’re the one whos blind. First, look at the name, just because she will pass as white doesn’t mean crap. Have you ever heard of culture? Believe it or not, there are vast differences between cultures. Yes, it would be nice if we could all get along but the differences are bound to create conflict. Violence, gangs, and corruption are normal in most of Central/South America. You’re crazy to think this won’t be imported along with them. Second, WTH do Republicans have to do with this? I’m conservative, I think Trump is a freaking idiot but I will give him props for having the guts to say that there is a huge immigration issue. If anything, its bleeding hearts like you that are ruining this country.
