Social worker thrown back in jail after she allegedly showed up at 13-year-old sexual abuse victim’s home with gun and said boy’s mom ‘ruined her life’



An Ohio social worker charged with sexually abusing a 13-year-old boy and making threats against his mother after bonding out of jail now faces a lawsuit.

Payton Harleigh Shires, of Mount Sterling, was named a defendant in the civil suit alongside the National Youth Advocated Program (NYAP), the organization that hired her as a social worker.

The lawsuit, filed on Nov. 20 by the Fitch Law Firm in Franklin County Common Pleas Court, alleged that from August into September, while Shires was employed by NYAP, the social worker “engaged in an inappropriate sexual relationship” with John Doe “at various locations in Franklin County, Ohio as well as other Ohio counties.”

The boy’s mother, Jane Doe, reported the “inappropriate conduct” to a NYAP supervisor on Sept. 22 and asked that Shires “be removed from Plaintiff John Doe’s care,” but organization failed to immediately remove her and the “inappropriate sexual relationship continued,” the suit alleged.

Both the mother and son are plaintiffs.
