HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - The mother of a teenage boy who says he was raped by a fellow resident of a South Windsor group home is suing the nonprofit that operates the facility, accusing staff of negligence.

The Journal Inquirer reports (http://bit.ly/1wtzRs3 ) that Hartford Superior Court Judge Antonio C. Robaina is permitting the boy and his mother to not use their names in court papers.

The lawsuit says the rape occurred in October 2013 at the group home operated by Community Residences Inc.

Community Residences denies the rape occurred as alleged. Lawyer David G. Hill said the organization has an “impeccable record” protecting its clients.

The youngster who was 14 at the time of the alleged incident is described as having emotional and psychological difficulties and had a “behavior support plan” that required round-the-clock individual staffing.
