An 11th person has joined a sex abuse lawsuit involving Nampa's Idaho Juvenile Corrections Center.

The Idaho Press Tribune reports attorney Bruce Skaug of Skaug Law PC in Nampa is representing the 11 claimants. This newest filing in the lawsuit says 41-year-old Valerie Lieteau performed oral sex on a juvenile inmate and had sex with him in her office.

Lieteau was a nurse at the center from 2008 to 2012.

Lieteau was extradited to Idaho from California last month and charged with two counts of sexual battery on a minor and two counts of sexual contact with a juvenile inmate.

She had told police in 2014 that she educated inmates about sexually transmitted diseases but did not have inappropriate contact with them.
