The Fulton County YMCA is facing a $10 million-dollar federal lawsuit due to its failure to protect a 12 year old from a predator employed by the agency.
The complaint outlines a pattern of activity by YMCA employee Tyler Benton that should have raised alarm bells. Unfortunately for the 12-year-old victim, the YMCA ignored these obvious signs and only took action after the unthinkable occurred.
Attorney for the victim, Ryan Finn stated: “As a father of a young girl this makes me sick. The YMCA was very quick to spin the story and make it seem that they did everything they could to work with the police. Missing from these reports is the simple fact that this horrific tragedy occurred at the YMCA facility, by a YMCA employee. Based upon the pattern of activity uncovered to date, I expect other victims to come forward. The YMCA should be ashamed of itself”
