$305K settlement in suit over infant’s rape

A $305K settlement reached in Warren, Ohio child rape case

WARREN, Ohio (AP) – A child raped as an infant by her biological parents during a partially supervised visit would receive payments under a $305,000 settlement between her adoptive parents and a children services agency they sued in Warren, Ohio.

A county judge approved the settlement involving Trumbull County Children Services on Wednesday. The settlement covers legal fees, a $25,000 payment for the girl when she’s 18 and then about $1,300 in limited monthly payments after she turns 21.

The Warren Tribune Chronicle reports a statement from the children services agency still disputed its liability but said the settlement directs more resources toward the girl rather than an extended legal fight.

The girl’s biological parents pleaded guilty to charges including rape and were sentenced to life in prison with the possibility of parole.
