Teen Sues County for Placing Her in Custody of Sex Offender Grandfather
 
Quote:

A Washington state teen is suing for millions of dollars in damages after she said a family court investigator "ruined her life" by knowingly sending her to live with her grandfather, a convicted sex offender who proceeded to abuse her nearly every day for a decade.

In court documents filed late last month, the unidentified teen claimed that she was just six years old when Cowlitz County Family Court Services investigator Mark Workingor took her from her mother and placed her in a home with her father and grandparents.

The teen said in the court documents that it happened in spite of her own father warning Workingor that his father, Vernil Jones, had been convicted of sodomizing a 10-year-old girl.

"She went through 10 years of incest of every kind almost daily by her grandfather," said Lincoln Beauregard, the attorney representing the teen.

"The bottom line is, regardless of where she lived, she should not have lived with a pedophile," said Beauregard.

Jones since has been sentenced to 25 years in prison for the assaults against the teen.

Wow!
To have custody given to a registered sex offender (pedophile) is extreme incompetence. Inexcusable.

If they can prove it was "knowingly", :mad

The father of the girl doesn't sound like the brightest stump in the forest either for not being aware of what was going on. Child Protective Services are a joke.

"knowingly" is the key word here, but I have a question...

10 years with no follow-up at any time?...

The "family court investigator" just handed her over to pop and his parents and never visited, asked questions, or got updates?...:confused

Custody wasn't given to the sex offender, it was given to the father who lived with a sex offender.

Why didn't the father grow a pair and get his own place and protect his kid?
