The FBI confirms that it has dispatched agents to Lincoln Hills School for Boys to investigate claims of assaults against juveniles and of management cover-ups of problems. The state Dept. of Justice has also been investigating reports of attacks and misconduct. Some accounts allege broken arms and wrists.

The list of potential crimes being alleged at Lincoln Hills School for Boys is disturbing according to Jason Stein,  one of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reporters monitoring developments.

"They include second-degree sexual assault, physical child abuse, intimidation of witnesses, misconduct in office and a number of others," says Stein.

The religious coalition WISDOM is delivering demands Wednesday to the Department of Corrections, including that it consider parole for 3,000 inmates.
