Texas Youth Jail Sued for Sexual, Physical Abuse of Children

Democracy Now! | Headlines for February 27, 2008: "In Texas, a government-run youth detention jail is facing new allegations of sexual abuse and physical beatings of immigrant children. A lawsuit says nine children were molested at the Texas Sheltered Care center in the town of Nixon. The suit says the jail’s administrators ignored complaints from the children and worked to cover up their allegations. The detention center was closed down last year after sexual abuse allegations first surfaced."
