We have a disturbing story involving the foster child of a convicted pedophile in Arizona, who is now suing the state's child protective services agencies inside the state for their failure to protect him.
Tucson Attorney Lynne Cadigan filed the claim on behalf of her client, simply going by the name "John Doe" to protect his identity, saying that the Arizona Departments of Child Safety and Economic Security (formerly known as Child Protective Services) for what he claims is "twelve years of a living hell," in which he was subject to both physical and sexual abuse while in the home.
The lawsuit is seeking damages of nearly $15 million, although the child's attorney says that no amount of cash can ever bring back the innocence which was stripped of her client as a result of the direct failures of the agency which the plaintiff claims involves "failed child protection practices and policies," according to the document.
In 2004 John Doe first was sent to live with convicted pedophile David Frodsham and his wife at their Sierra Vista residence and remained in the care of the family until 2016.
Frodsham was a ranking Army leader in addition to being a well-known and highly respected member of the community prior to his arrest.

He served as<a href="http://archive.is/nCHCQ#selection-682.2-1214.0"> Deputy Garrison Commander at the United States Army's Camp Humphreys </a>for five years, before transferring to become Deputy G1 for the U.S. Army Network Technology Command at Fort Huachuca just prior to his arrest.
In 2016, Frodsham was implicated and later convicted of operating a child porn pedophile ring inside of his home, according to the<a href="http://tucson.com/news/local/ex-foster-child-of-convicted-pedophile-files-m-claim-against/article_9f3986c0-8f05-5ec3-9562-ade05a18be1c.html"> Tucson.com </a>website.
Homeland Security Investigations and Immigration and Customs Enforcement would later investigate and charge both Frodsham and Specialist Randall Bischak for their involvement in the child pornography ring, as reported by the<a href="http://www.myheraldreview.com/free_access/soldier-former-foster-parent-arrested-for-child-sex-crimes/article_5a6227b6-0bef-11e6-847e-8b620d068b7e.html"> Herald Review</a>.

In December of 2016, David Frodsham was sentenced to 17 years in prison after he pleaded guilty to child sexual abuse and child pornography.
The story resembles that of many other children across the nation, many of whom claim they're ripped out of their homes and put into foster care only to later suffer from abuse at the hands of vicious pedophiles and child molesters.
<a href="https://www.thegoldwater.com/news/14065-Philadelphia-Child-Protection-Agency-Employee-Now-Charged-with-Child-Pornography">The Goldwater reported </a>a case in Philadelphia last year where a Child Protective Services employee was actually charged for child pornography, shining a light into the state agencies that many claims are infested with pedophiles and pedophile apologists.
"David Frodsham utilized the State of Arizona and the foster care system to funnel innocent, vulnerable children into his home, so he could run a pedophile ring," the claim said.
John Doe, who recently turned 18 but fears further mental abuse if not a danger to his life, claims it's crucial he keep his identity anonymous. He also says he was raped and sexually assaulted "countless times" while inside the home.
To make matters worse, Frodsham acted as if he was the young child's "pimp", forcing the child to have sex with multiple men throughout the years for a profit.
Frodsham himself would often join into the ritual sodomization of John Doe, in what's alleged to be an elite network of pedophiles who would participate in gang rapes of the children.
The plaintiff also stated that Frodsham "helped enable a network of pedophiles in the Sierra Vista area," all of which repeatedly abused him and many other children.
In addition to the horrendous sexual abuse at the hands of Frodsham, his wife would also neglect and physically beat John Doe.

John Doe states that the wife would refuse to buy him any clothes, feed him, and often make him sleep outside in storms and gain pleasure from the type of torture he would endure. Even going as far as locking him outside of the house when they would leave for work.
The Child Protective Services agency had multiple complaints about the living conditions inside the home and would repeatedly defend the parents they'd sent the child to live with, in an effort to prevent themselves from liability.
The foster and other children were forced to eat hot sauce as punishment, handcuffed to the bed all night, locked outside the home and locked in closets," the claim said. "John Doe and the other boys were beaten with fists, brooms, belts and other objects to the extent that medical care was frequently required."
As far back as 2007 one of the Child Protective Services caseworkers even came to the house and documented Frodsham admitting that he'd placed the child in handcuffs, but did nothing more than give the pedophile a warning and allowed him to remain a foster parent continuing the abuse.
"The Frodshams did not hide the fact that they used the handcuffs and notified the agency immediately," the progress report said, adding that the only "corrective action" to be taken against the Frodsham would be a review of policies and a "stern warning that this is inappropriate behavior and against policy."
The progress report also documents other witnesses telling Child Protective Services that they'd seen Frodsham's wife slap the children multiple times.
Over 38 police reports were on file for the abuse that happened inside the Frodsham's household and never once was the abuse stopped until Frodsham's eventual conviction.
"The state should have reviewed these as part of their licensing of the foster/adoptive parent program," the claim says. "John Doe complained to (DCS) over 16 times and nothing was done."
DCS also documented at least 10 abuse and neglect complaints against the Frodsham between 2002 and 2015.
"Children in abusive homes rarely can report the abuse, as if they do they are beaten again," the claim said. "This is exactly what happened to John Doe."
The court documents state that John Doe was left "completely vulnerable" to further abuse as a result of the inaction of CPS, listing ten different ways the agency failed the child.
"Instead, the state left John Doe in the foster-adoptive home, and the Frodsham received a monthly stipend from the state to abuse him," the claim said.
"There were numerous deliberate and negligent failings in the state in this case, as despite constant DCS presence and reports and complaints, the Frodsham were allowed to traffic their children for sex and pornography, abuse and beat the children in horrific ways, and yet blame it all on the children," the claim said.
John Doe isn't just seeking $15 million as per a settlement but demands that the agency completely purge the old policies which allowed such vicious abuse to continue.
In a hope that his case can protect future children from abuse, he will be shining light into a very dark world.
