DFS Has Little Recourse
Casper, Wy – A Department of Family Services investigation learned that an inmate may have been sexually assaulted at the Juvenile Detention Center in Casper... but when a child reported the incident to those in charge of the facility the allegation was not reported to the state. It's one of several problems concerning the operation of the facility uncovered by D-F-S. The Department says there are few actions they can take against the company that operated the facility, called Cheyenne based Frontier Correctional services. Department Spokeswoman Juliette Rule says a new company has already taken over operations. But she says the Department could put those affiliated with Frontier on Wyoming's Central Registry, which lists people who have abused or neglected a child.
Rule would not confirm whether the Department has put any names on this list... but she did say it's an option.
