A painfully long child molestation case has finally come to a close for the City of Carson City. Court records show that a rather mentally disturbed teen-age male volunteer was sexually molesting young girls enrolled in the city’s Camp Carson Summer program. The fifteen year old teenager was accused of molesting young Camp Carson attendees over the course of a summer a few years ago.
When the molestation surfaced the families of the young victims sued the city. The total damages came to about $1.6 million dollars proportioned between the city and its insurance company. The city has since re-calibrated the summer recreation program – launched close supervision of Camp Carson employees, closer re-evaluation of who is hired, who gets to volunteer and to keep a close eye on the children.
