The family of a woman who was beaten and raped outside the four years ago is suing her attacker's family, TBO.com reports.
The rape survivor, whose identity has been withheld by the media, was an 18-year-old East Bay High student at the time. She was left unable to eat, walk or speak, although she .
Her attacker, Kendrick Morris, then a student, is for that attack and a previous assault on a day care worker.
In a lawsuit filed April 23 in Hillsborough County, Morris' mother, Lisa Stevens, and his grandmother, Lucina Stevens, are named as defendants, TBO reports. The suit claims Morris had a juvenile arrest record and a history of violent behavior before the April 2008 attack, yet his mother and grandmother regularly allowed him to violate his mandated curfew, including the night of the library attack.
TBO could not reach Lisa Stevens or Lucina Stevens for comment.
The rape survivor's family last fall sued the companies that designed and built the library.
