Long Prairie horse camp being sued by abuse victim
It is now the Circle R Ranch located in rural Long Prairie that is in trouble after a personal injury lawsuit was filed against the ranch in an amount in excess of $50,000.
Following is a news release from a victim’s attorney, Jeff Anderson & Associates, PA,
Today, a courageous survivor of sexual abuse and exploitation filed a lawsuit against Circle R Ranch, a summer horse camp for children in Long Prairie, Minnesota. The survivor, identified as Doe 600 in the lawsuit, was sexually abused from 2015 to 2016 by Scott Francis Fortier, a convicted child pornographer, and longtime camp counselor at Circle R Ranch.
Doe 600 says she brings her lawsuit today because she wants Circle R Ranch held accountable for allowing so many girls to be sexually abused by Fortier for so many years, and to encourage other survivors to come forward and share their stories.
Fortier is currently serving a 25-year prison sentence for a 2018 child pornography conviction involving abuse of Doe 600 and another minor camper he met at Circle R Ranch. . . .
