3 staffers at facility for at-risk boys face assault charges

ALBANY, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky State Police say three employees at a facility for at-risk teen boys have been charged with assaulting residents. Media outlets report the investigation began after police were notified that a boy had been brought to Clinton County Hospital with injuries sustained at Foothills Academy in Albany. State police say the three Foothills employees were arrested March 31. Foothills Academy is licensed to accept teen boys for services such as counseling and help managing anger. The head of the academy wasn’t available for comment, but the facility says it’s committed to providing a safe environment for young people.
