$287,000 settlement – boy fondled by employer starstarstarstarstar

Child sexual assault is a serious problem that requires immediate attention.

A young boy working an after school job was sexually molested by the manager of the store where he was working.  The employer failed to perform a reasonable background investigation.  John Elliott Leighton proved that the employer should never have allowed the manager access to young boys without supervision.  A confidential settlement of $287,000 was obtained which provided funds for therapy and education.

Leighton Law fights for children who have been sexually assaulted and sexually abused wherever it happens.
