SEXUAL ABUSE VICTIMS WHILE INCARCERATED AT A NEW HAMPSHIRE YOUTH DETENTION CENTER (YDC)

A New Hampshire House Bill (HB1677-FN) establishes a compensation fund for sex abuse victims of the state’s youth detention centers, including:

  • State Industrial School
  • Philbrook School
  • Tobey Special Education School
  • Youth Services Center

Details of the New Hampshire youth detention centers (YDCs) sex abuses

The former child residents of the Youth Development Center are suing the state, alleging that between 1960 and 2018, children were beaten, raped, and tortured by state employees–while the stories of abuse have, for decades, stayed largely shielded from public view.

Hints of what went on inside the institution’s red-brick dormitories came in pieces–the rare termination of a problem employee, independent investigations that outlined the center’s disturbing culture but seemed to do little to curb mistreatment.

More than 500 men and women have so far come forward with allegations of sexual or physical abuse at the hands of staff, a pattern of mistreatment spanning six decades.

At least 150 staffers have so far been implicated by alleged victims, according to court filings and attorneys for the plaintiffs.

The breadth of wrongdoing, experts say, has quietly approached or exceeded some of the country’s most high-profile child sexual abuse scandals.

Many who spent time there depict New Hampshire’s YDCs as houses of horrors, including:

  • Rampant sexual abuse by rogue staffers;
  • Beatings so severe they eventually broke bones;
  • Residents being forced by staff to fight each other for food;
  • Solitary confinement stays that stretched for months; and,
  • Exposure to this kind of violence leaves lasting psychological damage.

The alleged victims span generations and social strata–among those who have come forward: is a New Hampshire state representative who’s long been critical of the center’s history and who revealed in an interview that he, too, was sexually assaulted by a staff member during his time at the facility.

“It was essentially a youth prison,” said Cody Belanger, a 27-year-old Republican, who was detained at one of the YDCs at the age of 13. “We felt that we weren’t worth anything, that they weren’t even going to bother listening to our concerns.”

Eligible victims are encouraged to request a free, private case evaluation by our experienced legal staff with the potential for compensation and justice.
