Amended civil suit alleges abuse, cover-up at former boys ranch

26 October 2013 Published in News
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. Last week, attorneys representing the plaintiffs in the federal civil suit against the Silverado Academy filed a third amended complaint in the drawn-out case. If a judge accepts the updated complaint, at least three primary members of the company and two supervisors from the former Silverado Academy will be added as defendants in the suit.
