By Pat Reavy The owners of a Utah residential center for troubled teens should never have hired the man convicted of sexually abusing multiple boys at the center, according to prosecutors. And even after they hired him, there were multiple warnings that went ignored by supervisors that could have prevented further abuse, prosecutors allege.
