Jones v. Caplan (sex abuse)

Franklin County Court of Common Pleas

Palmer helps 14 year old babysitter in claim of sexual abuse by an adult.

A 14 year old babysitter was taken on a vacation trip with a family in her neighborhood. Although her parents knew the family, they did not know that the family had invited another adult and his young daughter to stay with them. The vacationers had told the babysitter to stay in the man's room, with him and his younger daughter. This man (aged 51) made inappropriate sexual advances on the babysitter at the hotel. A confidential settlement was reached on the morning of trial.
