Imprisoned day care operator sued by sex abuse victim | al.com
A man imprisoned for sexually abusing a child at his now-closed Cahaba Heights day care center was sued Friday by one of the victims and her mother, court records show.
The suit was filed in Jefferson County Circuit Court against Robert Eugene Frost, who is serving a 20-year sentence in the Bullock Correctional Facility after his conviction earlier this year for sexual abuse of a child under age 12.
The mother, identified in the suit only as LL, and daughter, identified only as KD, both have been scarred by the molestation and are mistrustful, the lawsuit said. Both require ongoing therapy, it said.
The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages for assault and battery and intentional infliction of emotional distress. It also claims Frost, the day care center he operated and its church sponsor were negligent in training and supervising Frost.
The suit contends Frost, 76, sexually touched the girl several times between 2008 and 2010, ending when she was 5 years old. Frost told the girl that her mother would hate her if she told anyone. The mother-daughter relationship continues to be strained because of the threats, the suit said.
Frost was arrested in 2010 at Christian’s Day Care and Learning Academy, and charged with sexually abusing two girls, including KD.
Earlier this year, a Jefferson County jury convicted him on one count of sex abuse of a child under age 12, but could not decide two other charges involving the girls.
