Lawsuit filed regarding Adair Youth Detention Center conditions

Troubling details continue to emerge about the conditions at the Adair Youth Detention Center in neighboring Adair County.

A lawsuit filed by two former employees against Kentucky’s Department of Juvenile Justice describe the conditions inside the facility and certain incidents as “borderline sadistic” and “inhumane.”

The lawsuit says youth in the facility were locked down for 24 hours a day, not fed, and kept in unsanitary conditions.

It also alleges that some supervisors were falsifying documents like incident reports.

Several former employees have expressed their concerns about the facility since a violent incident occurred at the center last year.
