Lee Parker’s life changed forever at the age of 12. While under the care of Child and Youth Services Lee was placed in a group home where he would meet his abuser.
His abuser was a staff member who he got along with very well.
Lee was allowed to go home with this staff member on house visits and then overnight visits.
His abuser became his foster father and a month later began sexually abusing Lee for the next year and a half. Lee would be at school one day visibly upset and not wanting to go “home.” A school nurse would spend the time to hear his story and intervene.
Now at the age of 31, finally coming to terms with what happened to him, he is finding the statutes of limitations is working against him.
