Family Sues State After 22-Year-Old Beaten and Left for Dead at Care Facility

The family of a severely disabled young man have filed a federal complaint against the state after staff at a residential care center allegedly beat him with a stick. The 22-year-old was neglected and malnourished before he died of pneumonia last year.

The complaint, filed by the family, says five staff members at the facility abuse the man, who was in their care and had unexplained cuts and bruises when taken to the hospital. In 2007, a 13-year-old girl was smothered by an aide at the same facility. For more, read the story.
