SNOQUALMIE, Wash. (AP) — Six teenage boys escaped from a juvenile detention center in Washington state after knocking out a female staff member, but all were captured a few hours later early Sunday in nearby woods, authorities said.
WALES, Wis. (AP) — After struggling for years to treat young criminals in razor wire-ringed institutions, states across the country are quietly shuttering dozens of reformatories amid plunging juvenile arrests, softer treatment policies and bleak budgets.
Five eighth-graders were referred to juvenile court after four vehicles were reported stolen over the weekend, according to the Jamestown Police Department.
Police did not release names because of their ages but did say the suspects were three 14-year-old boys, one 15-year-old boy and a 14-year-old girl.
A 16-year-old girl in the care of the Attendant Care program escaped from authorities Thursday night, said Vince Ament, juvenile court officer III.
The girl, who was there because she had a history of running away, was later apprehended, he said.
Shelia Schnabel remembers the night she looked after a girl in trouble with the law.
Schnabel has monitored children like the girl for 14 years, usually a few times a month, but this girl was different.
The girl talked to Schnabel for the hours she was in the Attendant Care program, hours that turned into two days.
