Del. State Attorney General's Office Sues Dover Physician Assistant

Posted:

DOVER, Del. – Delaware's State Attorney General's Office is suing a Dover physician's assistant for allegedly not reporting a suspected case of child abuse.

The lawsuit claims that a 9-year-old patient told Melissa Dean, ABC Pediatrics, that one of his uncle's friends touched him in the buttocks two years ago and he feared it would happen again.

The lawsuit says Dean told the boy's mother to set up an appointment with the Children's Advocacy Center, an agency that coordinates child abuse investigations. However, Dean failed to call a 24-hour reporting line, which is required by law.

Dean declined to comment. The attorney general's office defended the state requirement to call the reporting line, but declined to comment on the case.
