The Augusta (Ga.) Chronicle is reporting that the director of the Augusta Youth Development Campus has been fired in the wake of an investigation into a sexual assault at the facility.
Director John Brady was fired Monday, according to Emily Gest, director of communications for the Georgia Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ). She declined further comment.
A statement from the DJJ, however, said a 14-year-old reported he had been assaulted by a 17-year-old on Sunday.
The Chronicle also reports that “two cases of youth-on-youth sexual acts and one case of abusive sexual contact” have been reported this year at the facility.
The Augusta YDC is the same facility where 19-year-old Jade Holder was beaten and later died on Nov 8. A 17-year-old, Michael Everidge, was charged after the Georgia Bureau of Investigation was asked to investigate.
The GBI is also conducting the investigation into the alleged sexual assault.
