Judge dismisses suit for toddlers allegedly sexually abused in DHS custody

Alexandria Faye filed a lawsuit last year in U.S. District Court in Gulfport. Faye alleged her two children, ages 1 and 2 at the time, were sexually abused in 2014 and contracted gonorrhea while living in a Gulfport foster home.
