Attorney Nadeem Bezar states that the rape of a foster girl was in part caused by a systematic failure.

A seven-year-old girl was placed in a foster home where an employee was under investigation for inappropriate behavior toward children. She was later raped while dwelling in that home. The accused, Walter Scott, will go on trial in February.

Multiple errors were made by people in the system. “When you have a system that’s supposed to stop placement in a home because it’s under investigation and you go through that system and don’t abide by it, it makes us all nervous,”¬†said the girl’s attorney, Nadeem Bezar.
