The attorney for a former Youth Development Center detainee who accused two former counselors of repeated sexual assaults dating back to 1997 says his client suffered “unspeakable beatings and rapes” at the hands of these two men.
“It’s been a long and difficult process for the survivor in this case to come forward with the horrific abuse that he endured at the hands of guards” at the Youth Detention Center in Manchester, attorney Rus Rilee said in a statement.
“My client’s goal in coming forward is to shine a light on the systemic failures that resulted in the physical and sexual abuse that he and others endured over a period of decades, and to ensure that what happened to him happens to no other child in the care of the state,” Rilee said.
