Dozier Investigation Underway

October 27th, 2006 by flanews

The Department of Juvenile Justice is investigating allegations that a 16 year old confined at the Dozier School for Boys was the victim of repeated sexual assaults by a female teachers aide. DJJ Chief of Staff Cynthia Lorenzo confirms the investigation is underway but thats about all she can say right now.
In this particular case, I cant comment because its under investigation. But I can say that we did receive some allegations of improper conduct at the Dozier School for Boys and we immediately sent out a team of investigators and have an open investigation into the incidents surrounding that, said Lorenzo.
The boys mother is trying to get him out of Dozier a maximum security jail in North Floridas Jackson County. She wants his released for outpatient treatment of transferred to a different facility. But Lorenzo says their policy is that no one gets released until court-ordered treatment has been completed.
And if the mother has some concerns than certainly well work with her to see whats in the best interest of her son, Lorenzo said.
The teachers aide is no longer employed at Dozier, but so far she is not facing any criminal charges and her alleged victim is still confined.
