CANTON — Two foster fathers allegedly sexually abused a young girl in foster care in St. Lawrence County nearly 50 years ago, according to a lawsuit filed against the county last week.
The woman, identified as her initials C.I. in court documents, filed suit in state Supreme Court in St. Lawrence County against the county and 10 unidentified people for the alleged actions that occurred beginning in 1973.
The complaint claims that C.I. made a “diligent effort” to identify these defendants prior to filing her lawsuit, but she was unable to do so.
The 10 unidentified defendants, according to the complaint, are people or entities with responsibilities for the safety, supervision and foster care placement of C.I.
