Government Negligence: Sexual Assault of a Minor by State Juvenile Detention Center's Guard
We represented a 16-year-old boy who was living at the Adobe Mountain juvenile facility outside of Phoenix. This young boy was repeatedly sexually molested by a female prison guard. As part of our investigation and work on the case, the United States Department of Justice investigated the Arizona juvenile detention system and issued many criticisms and recommendations. The juvenile detention system was put under watch by the Department of Justice. We settled our client's case before filing a lawsuit. The guard is currently serving a sentence in the Arizona prison system.
