11th Person Added to Idaho Juvenile Sex Abuse Lawsuit
NAMPA, Idaho (AP) — An 11th person has joined a sex abuse lawsuit involving Nampa's Idaho Juvenile Corrections Center.
The Idaho Press-Tribune reports attorney Bruce Skaug of Skaug Law PC in Nampa is representing the 11 claimants. This newest filing in the lawsuit says 41-year-old Valerie Lieteau performed oral sex on a juvenile inmate and had sex with him in her office. Lieteau was a nurse at the center from 2008 to 2012.
Lieteau was extradited to Idaho from California last month and charged with two counts of sexual battery on a minor and two counts of sexual contact with a juvenile inmate. She had told police in 2014 that she educated inmates about sexually transmitted diseases but did not have inappropriate contact with them.
