Child Victims Act Lawsuit Against The Children’s Home of Poughkeepsie

Sex abuse attorneys Greenstein & Milbauer, LLP announced the filing of a lawsuit, under the Child Victims Act, against The Children’s Home of Poughkeepsie, where an employee allegedly raped a fourteen-year-old girl.

It is alleged that Plaintiff lived at The Children’s Home of Poughkeepsie in early 2000 when she was approximately fourteen (14) years old. During Plaintiff’s residency at The Children’s Home of Poughkeepsie, it is alleged that Tarell Heard, who was an employee of The Children’s Home of Poughkeepsie, raped and sexually assaulted Plaintiff on multiple occasions. It is alleged that The Children’s Home of Poughkeepsie ignored red flags alerting them to Tarell Heard’s sexual misconduct toward residents living in their facility.

Last year, Tarell Heard was arrested for endangering the welfare of a child under the age of sixteen while working at Astor Services for Children and Families. Tarell Heard had also worked at New Horizons Behavioral Health.

The lawsuit is brought against The Children’s Home of Poughkeepsie. This lawsuit would not have been possible without the New York Child Victims Act.
