AP - The attorney for fast food giant McDonald's Corporation has blamed employee mistakes for a sexual assault on an year-old worker in April at the chain's restaurant in Mount Washington. The location is about 20 miles south of Louisville. Patterson said in opening remarks today in a civil trial that McDonald's had policies in place and warned employees in an effort to deal with a series of strip search hoaxes across the country.
The strip search phone call scam was a series of incidents, mostly occurring in rural areas of the United States, that extended over a period of about twelve years, starting in The incidents involved a man calling a restaurant or grocery store, claiming to be a police officer and then convincing managers to conduct strip searches of female employees, and to perform other bizarre acts on behalf of "the police". The calls were most often placed to fast-food restaurants in small towns.
It was the shocking story -- and unbelievable surveillance video -- that riveted the nation. A young McDonald's employee humiliated, forced to strip and then to perform a sexual act in the back office, during her work day. This horrifying ordeal changed one woman's life forever, and put one man on trial, accused of masterminding a bizarre and elaborate hoax. If convicted, David Stewart faced 15 years in prison on charges ranging from solicitation of sodomy, to impersonating a police officer.
It turns out said Oldfather, Ogborn is actually going to be getting a little bit more. Getting interest and attorney's fees. Ogborn was degraded for hours after someone called the McDonald's in Mount Washington posing as a police officer in April
Hoax caller duped managers of more than 70 fast food outlets in 31 US states into strip-searching, humiliating and sexually abusing customers and staff. The officer stayed on the line and told Summers that in order to preserve evidence she must instruct the girl to strip naked, put the clothes in a bag and take them away. The assistant manager did as she was told. Terrified Louise was just the latest victim of one of the strangest and cruelest phone hoaxers ever.
