Teen Sues State Juvenile Corrections for Abuse

idahocounties.org

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — A 15-year-old boy is seeking $1.2 million from Idaho and its correctional system, claiming the state failed to protect him from a prison staffer who sexually assaulted him. The Idaho Press-Tribune reported Thursday a tort claim was filed against Idaho Department of Juvenile Correction director Sharon Harrigfeld as well as other state officials and agencies. A 31-year-old former safety and security supervisor, Julie McCormick, was charged criminally earlier this month. Now, the alleged victim is seeking civil reparations, arguing that he suffered emotional and personal distress as a result of “statutory rape, lewd and lascivious conduct, sexual battery, neglect” and other harm. In the tort claim, his lawyers allege McCormick took him to places in the juvenile facility in Nampa where no cameras could record their activities.
