An Orange County Superior Court jury has awarded $300,000 to the family of a blind quadriplegic girl who was molested four years ago at a Garden Grove home for the disabled. The girl, who cannot speak and is mentally retarded, was 8 years old when staffers at Hylond Home found an intruder undressing her in the bathroom in October, 1986. Jurors determined Monday that the girl, now 12, should receive $150,000 from Hylond for negligence and that her parents should receive $75,000 each.
