Washington State Agrees to Pay $16.95 Million to a Dozen Former Residents Who Were Abused at a Boys Ranch

Washington State agreed to pay $16.95 million total to a dozen former residents of the J Bar D Boys Ranch, who were sexually and physically abused while at the ranch after being placed there by the state.

The case settled Tuesday before closing arguments in a more than four-week civil trial in Thurston County.

The settlement comes nearly a year after Terry Vanbuskirk, another former resident, received a $1.5 million settlement from the Department of Children, Youth and Families.
