New Hampshire’s youth detention center faces another lawsuit from a man who alleged that he was sexually and physically assaulted by the staffers at the center.
As per the court documents, the plaintiff has spent three years in the detention center in the 1990s, where he was beaten and exploited sexually by the staffers. The plaintiff sued 11 men from the center, of which five have been arrested. The accused men are alleged of sexually assaulting or acting as accomplices to the assaults of the teenagers in the center.
The lawsuit states that the assaulters used to bring the kids down to the ground with a knee on the back of the neck, dropping elbows, kicking and dragging them. The plaintiff even alleged that he was held in solitary confinement for as long as three months apart from being physically and sexually assaulted.
The attorneys for the plaintiff even stated that sometimes the staffers removed everything from the room, including the mattress, and kept him in underwear. The victims were threatened with physical retaliation if they report the matter.
Many lawsuits, including similar allegations from more than 300 men and women, have been brought against the 150 staffers of the center.
