A Florida jury awarded $3 million last month to the family of a young girl who was sexually abused at a day care center. The Miami-Dade Circuit Court jury found Discovery Day Care at fault after a lengthy trial. Trial testimony showed that the day care center director’s son admitted abusing the girl on multiple occasions when he was left alone with the children in 2008.
Testimony also showed that a center employee falsified documents related to the abuse. The abuse happened when, the girl now eight, was a preschooler. The boy was 13 at the time and later pleaded guilty to sexual battery in juvenile court. The daycare center’s lawyer said the verdict would be appealed. Jeff Herman, a lawyer with Herman, Mermolstein, & Horonitz, located in Miami, Fla., represented the family in the case and did a very good job. Jeff is a nationally recognized lawyer for victims of sexual abuse.
