Questions Linger After Foster Child Sexually Assaulted
Updated: Saturday, August 3 2013, 04:08 PM CDT
A North Austin foster home is under increased scrutiny after a child there allegedly ran away and was sexually assaulted.
The Settlement home describes itself as a residential treatment center and therapeutic group home.
According to the state, the home is a placing agency for foster children, who may need a little extra care.
After a teenager ran away and was allegedly sexually assaulted, the home is being investigated by residential childcare licensing, which is a part of the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services.
"In this particular case residential child care licensing is investigating for supervision standards,” said spokeswoman Julie Moody.
A teenage victim was reportedly living at the Settlement Home, but arrest warrants reveal that on the night of June 29 she ran away.
She'd only gone a few blocks on foot when, the documents say, the teen got into a car with three men.
She was allegedly taken to an apartment building a mile away where the arrest warrants say she was repeatedly raped by 10 men.
KEYE TV tried to get answers from the Settlement Home on how the teen was able to run away but was told they have no comment.
A state representative says it's not a lockdown facility but some areas are more secure than others.
According to records on the state's website, the Settlement Home has had seven compliance deficiencies since July of 2011.
Five of them medium to high risk.
