"Recent reports of sexual misconduct and inappropriate relationships by state employees at the Texas Juvenile Justice Department (TJJD) are reprehensible and necessitate an appropriate response," Abbott wrote to McCraw. "While I commend the TJJD Office of the Inspector General for investigating these recent allegations and submitting them for prosecution, additional action is needed to guarantee the protection of the youth in the care and custody of the State of Texas."
Abbott added in his letter to Cain, "These egregious acts must be dealt with to the fullest extent of the law."
The agency pledged to "provide support in every way" for the investigation.
"Governor Abbott's letter to Col. McCraw reflects a strong commitment to the safety and well-being of the youth in TJJD's care," TJJD Director of External Relations Carolyn Beck said in a statement. "We welcome and share that commitment. Both the youth, and our dedicated staff members, deserve protections at every step. We appreciate added law enforcement support and involvement and look forward to working with the Rangers."
Texas confines lawbreakers who are 18 and under in five lockups across the state. In November, The News reported four staff members at the Gainesville State School — the largest such institution — were fired and faced prison time due to improper sexual activity with youths in custody. One staffer, a 29-year who was allegedly impregnated by a juvenile offender, was charged a second-degree felony and is currently free on bond.
