More Olympia Early Learning Center Suits Filed
A parent of a youngster formerly enrolled at the now-defunct Olympia Early Learning Center has sued the child care facility, alleging that a former assistant teacher molested her son, according to the suit.
The former assistant teacher at the Olympia Early Learning Center’s McPhee Road site, Elisha Tabor, 20, was sentenced in July to 18 years to life in prison for raping a 5-year-old pupil in the child’s home and a 4-year-old pupil at work.
The civil lawsuit filed Thursday alleges that a boy was molested by Tabor while he was between the ages of 2 months and 4 years old while enrolled at the Olympia Early Learning Center’s McPhee Road site between 2007 and 2010, attorney Darrell Cochran said.
Cochran said that the boy identified in his lawsuit filed in Thurston County Superior Court on Thursday is not one of the children that Tabor was convicted of molesting or raping.
