Mentally Retarded Rape

Columbia, SC: (Oct-02-07) Brenda Bryant, a South Carolina woman, brought a lawsuit against Babcock Center, alleging that a man from the company raped her mentally retarded daughter, more than a decade ago. Bryant sued the Babcock Center claiming that her 21-year-old mentally retarded daughter was raped by at least one man after she left her daughter in a Babcock home in 1995. Bryant says she has gone public in her role as an advocate for people with mental retardation.

In a settlement reached, Bryant agreed to end the lawsuit for $250,000. The company's insurance provider settled the case based on financial reasons. The company admitted no wrongdoing in the settlement. Babcock Center officials said the sex was consensual, and no man was ever criminally prosecuted. [WIS TV NEWS: CENTER RAPE]
