An Aurora-area prosecutor is moving to throw out a lawsuit filed by a victim of serial rapist Brent J.-Brents, on the basis of governmental immunity.
Eighteenth Judicial District Attorney Carol Chambers says her office has NO legal liability, and she can only offer the eight-thousand dollars an insurance company would pay for a settlement.
But 34-year-old Tiffany Engle says that's unacceptable.
She's fighting Chambers and the 18th District for not doing more to protect victims.
Police and prosecutors have admitted they made mistakes which allowed Brents to remain free -- even after he attacked a young boy.
She told her attorney to tell authorities to -- quote -- "go to hell" when she was first offered a ten-thousand-dollar settlement.
Four of Brents' victims have been compensated, but Engle says she now has partial hearing and vision loss, and will fight for an amount she thinks is fair.
Brents has already been sentenced to nearly 15-hundred years in prison.
