WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. – A sports camp run by former NFL quarterback Jay Fiedler and his family is being sued by a Westchester teen after he was allegedly sexually abused by a counselor at the camp in Sullivan County, according to a report on LoHud.com.
The alleged assault occurred in 2006 at Brookwood Camps, the report said. The 18-year-old, listed as “John Doe” in the suit, said counselor Willie Barron sexually assaulted the boy while he was sleeping in a cabin, according to LoHud.
