Teen Girls Molested at Youth Prison

A 52-year-old guard who worked at an infamous private youth prison for teens has been arrested after six girls reported he sexually abused them, according to the Pensacola News Journal. The Milton Girls Juvenile Residential Facility, which operated under contract with the state, was closed after a security video showed a staff member slamming a girl against a wall.

Originally founded in December 2006 as an independent grassroots publication dedicated to coverage of health issues in Florida, Health News Florida was acquired by WUSF Public Media in September 2012.
