Lawsuit Accusing Sheriff of Stunning Children Settles
Published on 08/03/2010 -
David Bowers and a fellow deputy were also accused of threatening to sodomize the three children. The children were staying at the Southern Thirty Adolescent Center, which houses youths with behavioral issues between the ages 11 to 18.
No admission of wrongdoing seems to be part of the deal.
No criminal charges were filed in the case. Bowers and his fellow deputy still work for the department and their boss has defended their actions.
The lawsuit alleges that Bowers pushed one boy and repeatedly stunned him, handcuffed another boy, and threatened to sodomize the third boy causing him to soil his pants.
