Boy Faced Brutal Molestation in After-School Program in Missouri: Lawsuit Filed by Father

A father from Jackson County has recently filed a lawsuit on behalf of his son, claiming that the boy was a victim of sexual assault at an after-school program in the same county last year.

In the lawsuit, the child, identified as A.N., was 7 years old at the time of the alleged abuse in 2023. The child claimed that he was sexually assaulted by an adult man at the after-school program he attended, according to his father.

Based on the lawsuit, the child has reported that the man touched the child’s penis and committed a sexual assault. An adult was involved in overseeing the after-school program, while a child was under their care when the alleged assault occurred.

The child has experienced severe physical, emotional, and psychological trauma due to the abuse, according to the father’s attorneys.

The child’s family is requesting a minimum of $75,000 in compensation.

The lawsuit was filed on June 28th. The individual accused of abuse is not identified in the legal complaint, and the specific after-school program where the incident occurred is also not mentioned.

According to the lawsuit, it is indicated that the accused individual may have relocated from Jackson County since the reported abuse occurred in 2023 as per the Kansas City Star.

Lauren Dollar, a Kansas City attorney from Dollar, Burns, Becker and Hershew, is representing the unnamed child. Dollar has experience as an assistant prosecuting attorney in the special victims unit for the Jackson County Prosecutor’s Office, with a specialization in child sexual abuse cases.

Dollar chose not to provide a comment on the case Wednesday afternoon, citing the need to prioritize time-sensitive legal procedures as they work on behalf of the victim.
