Ex-Child Center Worker Accused Of Illegal Sex 12-06-2010

Its mission is to provide a home for local children in crisis, but now police are investigating claims a worker at Whaley’s Children Center had sex with a 15-year-old girl.
A Flint police report obtained by TV5 tells the story of a former worker at Whaley who is accused of abusing a former resident.
The ex-employee is a man in his 40s and the report alleges the man was a manager and a caretaker of children at the highly respected home for abused, neglected and abandoned children.
According to the complaint, the teen said the man would come into her room and force her to have sex with him. The teen also told investigators the man would take her out of sight of surveillance cameras inside the building and that the ordeal lasted every night from April until June of this year.
The case has been handed over to the Genesee Prosecutor’s Office to decide on charges.
TV5 sat down with Jim Murdock, president and CEO of Whaley Children’s Center, and he said in the 85 years of the center’s existence, this type of thing has never happened.
Murdock issued this statement on Monday regarding the situation:
"Whaley Children's Center has been conducting an investigation, in full cooperation with the appropriate authorities and agencies, regarding allegations of abuse of a former resident by a former employee at the center. The agency provides residential treatment services to abused and neglected children and indicates that every effort is being made with the investigating agencies to determine the absolute accuracy of the allegations.
Since this is an on-going and open investigation, no details are being made available in the interest of preserving the rights and protecting the confidentiality of all the parties concerned."
