Mom sues Children and Youth over alleged sexual abuse of daughters
By Steve Mocarsky
A parent has sued Luzerne County Children and Youth Services, a caseworker and others, alleging her daughters were sexually abused while in foster care and the concerns she brought to county and foster care officials were ignored or handled improperly.
The 25-page lawsuit, filed Monday in U.S. District Court by attorneys Shelley Centini and Barry Dyller, also names the county, a Children and Youth supervisor, a foster care placement service and the foster parent as defendants.
County solicitor Romilda Crocamo said she could not comment because the county had not yet been served with the lawsuit.
