Dozens of California’s active and closed juvenile camps are accused of the sexual and physical abuse of minor inmates assigned to their facilities.

According to Los Angeles Times reports, more than 11 California probation officers in their massive juvenile system have been convicted of a variety of inappropriate abuses of current or former child inmates in their management–these reports include many cases of molestation or assault of these youths. 

Court documents reveal that the principals of these active and closed juvenile camps turned a blind eye to harassment, rape, and sexual assault of minors in the care of probation officers.

One prosecuting attorney revealed that “Vulnerable children often enter the system because of abuse they have suffered at home or on the streets. The probation system should offer these youthful offenders restorative justice instead of perpetuating their cycle of abuse. The criminal conduct of those who used their positions of authority to sexually assault these children must be exposed. These despicable people and those who enabled them must be held accountable.”

Over 20 years of news reports describe the pattern of abuses:

  • Officers accused of criminal acts such as theft;
  • A variety of other offenses committed while on duty;
  • Probation officers encourage fights among juveniles;
  • Sexual contact between officers and minor inmates.

Other accusations against supervisors in charge of minors include sexual assault of their underage inmates, as well as allegations of guards’ improper use of pepper spray on the children, as well.
