An anti-abortion group says it's suing a Texas judge who ordered a 15-year-girl to keep living in a house frequented by a sex offender, so that such a nightmare can never happen again.

"She's safe right now at an undisclosed location because we want to keep her identity protected, but right now, we're suing for damages," Stephen Casey, chief counsel for the Texas Center for Defense of Life, told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

Story continues below video.



"This girl needs to have no worries for the rest of her life because she has been through a nightmare and these people … If you have a duty to protect me, then when you drop on that duty, when you breach that duty, you owe me," Casey said.

The disturbing case involves a teen who last year was ordered to keep living with her legal guardian, even though she said the guardian's boyfriend, a convicted sex offender, was aggressively hitting on her.

The teen, who was pregnant, also claimed the couple was attempting to force her to have an abortion.

But six months after she was forced to return to the home, sex offender Edward Clinton Lee shot and killed his girlfriend and sexually assaulted the teen, authorities say.

Casey said the girl is now living with biologically related family members "who are out there to look out for her best interests."
