CARSON (CBSLA.com) — At least six parents have sued a Carson preschool following revelations that their children were allegedly involved in sexual acts with each other on school grounds.
Attorney Greg Owen filed the lawsuit Tuesday against First Lutheran Church of Carson School on behalf of the parents, who claim staff members failed to supervise the students and allowed them to engage in the inappropriate behavior.
Richard McCarthy said his 5-year-old son was molested in an unlocked bathroom in Oct. 2012.
“A teacher opened the door and saw this girl performing oral sex on my son,” he said.
The sexual misconduct reportedly occurred multiple times in the bathroom, on the playground and during naptime.
Owen said the girl who allegedly had contact with McCarthy’s son was molested by another child last year and school officials didn’t do anything about it.
The attorney said that girl’s family is also part of the suit against the preschool.
