Claim seeks $45M for incapacitated woman who gave birth

Share

PHOENIX (AP) — Lawyers for an incapacitated woman who later gave birth at a Phoenix long-term care facility have filed a $45 million notice of claim against the state.

The precursor to a lawsuit says the woman allegedly was raped repeatedly before giving birth last December.

The 54-page claim also says that according to a doctor who inspected the woman, she could have been pregnant before.

A former nurse at Hacienda Healthcare has been charged with sexually assaulting the 29-year-old woman who has been in long-term care since age 3 after suffering a near-drowning.

She gave birth to a boy at the facility on Dec. 29. Employees said they had no idea she was pregnant.
