$30 Million Dollars Awarded in Sexual Molestation Case

$30 Million Dollars Awarded In Sexual Molestation Case

Christopher R. Dixon, of the St. Louis law firm Page Law, LLC, has been successful in recovering a judgment in excess of $30 million dollars for two young men who were statutorily sodomized by former U.S. Attorney Eric Tolen.  Following a St. Louis County bench trial for assault and battery, the two young men, “J.B” and “C.W.”, whose names were sealed in court documents to protect their identities, were each awarded $14,500,000 in compensatory damages, and $520,000 in punitive damages.  Judge Michael T. Jamison’s judgment in this case was one of the largest personal injury awards recorded in St. Louis County.

In pursuit of collecting the judgment, another lawsuit has been filed on behalf of “J.B.” and “C.W.” in the St. Louis County Circuit Court, targeting Tolen’s assets.  In September of 2008, Tolen was criminally convicted of statutory sodomy and sentenced to 65 years in prison.  He was disbarred in June and is currently serving his sentence at the Jefferson City Correctional Center.

According to plaintiff’s lawyer Chris Dixon, Tolen fraudulently transferred residential and commercial property to his mother, Jeanette Tolen, after his criminal conviction.

Prior to his incarceration, Tolen was the owner of the Town & Country residential home located at 12740 Post Oak Road.  According to the St. Louis County Department of Revenue, this home was appraised in 2010 at $875,400, and the last sale price for this property was $600,000 in 2000.  In addition to the residential property, Tolen was the owner of commercial property of an undisclosed value, which was also transferred away from Tolen prior to his incarceration.  According to attorney Christopher Dixon, “any property recovered will be used to reimburse these young men for the heinous harms and losses suffered at the hands of this monster”.
