In the first verdict stemming from charges that nine teenagers were sexually assaulted while living in San Bernardino County foster homes, a jury Wednesday awarded $1.2 million to a 13-year-old boy who was sodomized by a counselor. Jurors will begin weighing additional punitive damages today. The award, determined in two days of deliberations, was less than half of the $2.5 million requested by the boy's attorneys after the monthlong trial.

A day after awarding a 13-year-old rape victim $1.2 million, a jury tacked on $1.6 million in punitive damages Thursday in one of three lawsuits against a San Bernardino County foster shelter. The case was brought on behalf of the boy, who was 11 while living at a group home known as Bronson House in 1999. He was raped at least three times by counselor Steve Ayala, who has pleaded guilty to sodomy and received a six-year prison term.

Even as defense attorneys labeled some of the evidence "garbage," lawyers for a 13-year-old who was molested by a counselor at his foster shelter two years ago asked a jury Monday to award the boy $2.5 million. The boy is one of nine teenagers who say they were raped or molested while living in San Bernardino County group homes--most of them by counselors who are there to protect and help them.
