Homeowners Where Videotaped Rape Took Place Settle Lawsuit

The just announced six-figure settlement by the parents of one of the boys involved in the videotaped rape of a 16-year-old girl which occurred in Burr Ridge 5 years ago, on the grounds that they knew or should have known that their home was being used for a drunken party, hopefully will deter parents from looking the other way when their residence is used to harm others.

Sometimes this harm is rape, but it often involves putting children in danger of alcohol poisoning.

Those who help make these crimes happen but who aren't present need to know they can be held accountable -- even if it is just financially.
