MORE CASES OF SEX ASSAULTS AT JUVENILE PRISONS
A government study released today, found that sexual assaults and other illicit incidents of sexual contact are reported at juvenile prisons at 10 times the rate than at adult lockups. The research found 10 reported incidents for every 2,000 youths at state-run juvenile facilities. It was one reported incident for every 2,000 inmates at state-run adult prisons. The study was done by the Justice Department's Bureau of Justice Statistics.
