YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (AP) — Three women have sued a county social-service agency in northeast Ohio, claiming they were sexually abused as teens by a dorm mother.
The lawsuit was filed Tuesday in state court in Youngstown against the Trumbull County Children Services agency in Warren.
An earlier federal lawsuit involving the same allegations was thrown out over filing deadlines.
According to the Warren Tribune Chronicle (bit.ly/1k6QVyz), agency director Tim Schaffner has said the claims were unfounded and no charges were filed. A message seeking additional comment was left for him Wednesday.
The women, who were teens at the time, claim the dorm mother enticed them to have sex at her apartment while under her care in county custody. The woman has resigned.
The lawsuit seeks $3 million in damages for each woman.
