More Accusations of Sexual Abuse at Idaho Juvenile Detention Center
BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Another person has filed a legal claim against the Idaho Department of Juvenile Correction contending that he was sexually abused by two staffers while incarcerated at a Nampa detention center.
The tort claim, filed Friday, marks the third such claim brought this year by a youth formerly held at the Juvenile Correction Center in Nampa. In the legal document, the youth is called only John Doe III. His attorney, Bruce Skaug, wrote in the claim that the boy was 16 when he was sexually abused in 2009 by two staffers — a woman who worked as a nurse at the detention center and another who worked as a medical assistant intern.
Idaho Department of Juvenile Correction spokesman Jeff Ray says he can't comment on pending litigation.
