Lawsuit Alleges Girl Raped by YMCA Counselor

A lawsuit has been filed in New York alleging a YMCA camp counselor raped a girl during camp last July. The worst case scenario allegedly occurred: the 11 year-old girl became pregnant and contracted a sexually transmitted disease as a result. (She had a son.)
The suit ties in the YMCA and complains while it fired the employee when the rape was discovered, the YMCA should have called the police.

While this is true, I can’t see how it is admissible at trial. What will matter at trial is whether the girl was raped and whether the YMCA is in some way responsible or vicariously liable. What happened after the crime will not be germane to these issues.
