Houston lawyer, Troy J. Wilson, is currently leading the charges in a lawsuit seeking at least $3 million in actual damages and at least $3 million in exemplary damages by the end of a jury trial against Houston-based foster care agency, America’s Angels and Laura Davis (an America’s Angels foster parent that resides in Fort Bend County).
The lawsuit, filed by a Fort Bend county couple, alleges that the couple’s daughter was raped and sodomized while in Davis’ care. According to the court documents, the under-age victim of the allegedly witnessed a male visitor at Davis’ residence engaging in sexual acts with another under-aged child at Davis’ residence. The child eventually ran away with another child from the home, but was caught and picked up by the alleged assailant. He took both minors to a hotel in West Houston where he had sex with both of them, according to the lawsuit. He then took them to meet four or five other men who proceeded to rape them, sodomizing them and throwing them out of the vehicle in the late evening, the lawsuit states. The minors were then rescued by members of the community and taken to a medical hospital and psychiatric facility for treatment.
Although the Texas Department of Family Protective Services is not named as a defendant, the lawsuit casts blame on the agency, stating, "... hardly any effort was made to gain justice for this child." In addition to making no contact with police to interview the girl, Family Protective Services placed her back in Davis' foster care, the suit states.
The owner and director of America's Angels, Uneeda Talley, said the child was not in the agency's care on the date in question. Talley declined to provide further comments.
