Oregon DHS reaches $15M settlement in foster child sex abuse lawsuit

The Oregon Department of Human Services reached a $15 million settlement in a civil lawsuit filed by nine former foster children of a man who admitted to sexually abusing the children. DHS Interim Director Gene Evans said the DHS is taking responsibility for the actions committed against the children.”DHS knows, understands and admits responsibility for the damages suffered by these innocent victims,” he said.”The settlement reflects the agency’s accountability for failing to ensure the safety of these children in its care.” All of these errors in conduct occurred under former Director Erinn Kelley-Siel, former clerk to Kulongoski, a name you will never hear.
