Why no charges?

March 26, 2007

Re "Struggles continue at juvenile hall," March 19

A staff member allows four wards into a locked cell to beat a youth she mistakenly assumed stole her cellphone (which she found later under her car), then left the youth without medical care and suborned false statements to cover the misconduct, and all that happens is that she is fired? Where are the criminal charges, to include conspiracy, aggravated assault, child abuse and perjury?

What is the message to other such thugs on the county payroll who would engage in similar conduct if all they face is termination?
