Florida Community Pays Mom $100,000 After Son is Molested

Florida Community Pays Mom $100,000 After Son is Molested

As a parent you're faced with dozens of moments where a leap of faith about your child's safety is required. Maria Elena Molina, a Florida mom, took one such leap when she signed her son up for a village-run camp in the bucolic community of Biscayne Park. It seemed like a good bet at the time, as the community felt to her like "the safest place ever."
