AdilanClub:Breaking news, is the best for news
A guard at a juvenile prison found herself behind bars this week after she was caught on tape battering a teenage detainee.
Although the encounter got Shannon Linn Abbott arrested, it didn’t get her fired. The 33-year-old bailed out and was back on the job right afterward and supervising children, to the extreme dismay of the Department of Juvenile Justice.
On Tuesday, a DJJ administrator formally asked the privately managed youth prison’s director to remove the guard from all access to children.
“It is our expectation, at the very least, that this staff member will have no contact with youth in any of our programs,” wrote Laura K. Moneyham, a DJJ assistant secretary.
The incident marks the third time in recent years that workers at a Florida juvenile justice lockup have been videotaped while abusing or neglecting a child in state custody.
