Hearing held in Idaho juvenile corrections lawsuit

Hearing held in Idaho juvenile corrections lawsuit | SocialAction2015 | Scoop.it
A group of current and former Juvenile Corrections employees filed the lawsuit last year alleging that some staffers at a Nampa juvenile detention facility sexually abused incarcerated youths, and that agency leaders knew about the abuse but didn't effectively act to stop it. The court "has seen evidence in bulk showing that there is a culture of retaliation, a lack â€" a serious lack â€" of required safety under the juvenile corrections act, PREA (Prison Rape Elimination Act), Health and Welfare code," Schoppe said. [...] the sides have exchanged more than a million pages of evidentiary documents, he said, and police are currently investigating additional allegations of the sexual abuse of youths at the Nampa detention facility. Evidence suggests the regular sexual abuse of male youths by mostly female employees stretches back 15 years, Schoppe said.
