30 Dec Jane Doe v. Anonymous Foster Care Facility
CIRCUIT COURT OF MOBILE COUNTY SETTLEMENT OF $5,000,000
Jane Doe was a troubled teen who was placed in the care and custody of the Alabama Department of Youth Services by a juvenile court that ordered her to reside in a privately owned therapeutic group home for a period of time. In addition to providing for Jane Doe’s routine care and basic needs, this facility was to provide specialized counseling, education and protection to Jane Doe in order for her to move beyond her troubled past and into a brighter future. However, Plaintiff proved that several staff at this facility failed to follow basic policies and procedures of the group home which allowed Jane Doe to be coerced from her room and be taken by several male residents to another location where she was gang raped and sodomized by male residents and a staff member.
