Leighton Files Lawsuit for Boy Sexually Abused at Daycare

04-07-2012

On April 2, John Leighton filed a lawsuit against KIDDIE U., INC, on behalf of a child who was sexually abused there at age six by an older boy, according to the suit.

The Orlando, Florida daycare facility is accused of negligence, for providing an unsupervised area where the older child had created a concealed area in the form of a “fort” in the gym room, where the abuse allegedly took place, and for misrepresentation, having told the mother that there were cameras in every room.  

The Orlando Sentinel reported the case filing and spoke with Leighton, who said that the victim has since revealed that he was sexually battered by the older boy at least five times and is in therapy and has suffered emotional distress.

"It's a very sad situation, because it will take his entire life in a different trajectory," Leighton said.

The case has generated widespread media coverage and attention to the risks of inappropriate supervision at day care facilities.
