Teen "Jane Doe" has been held in York CI without charges for over a month. York is Connecticut's only state women's prison. She is being held in solitary confinement to keep her from the adults in the prison. She was sent by DCF with no charges: they state she has a history of violence against staff of residential and psychiatric facilities. The girl has been in DCF custody since the age of five and has an extensive history of trauma.
The DOC is currently assessing whether she will stay at York or be transferred to a prison for males aged 14 to 20. This is appalling. There was a rally held outside of DCF a few weeks ago, I'm looking into whether or not a new one is planned.
Also, first post, I know it is poorly written but I'm tired and wanted to get this out there.
