Default Horror story of youth in adult prison!

Comments from father of teenager who committed suicide in adult TX prison

Article :
These comments were posted in 1996; however, they are just as timely today -- particularly given the abuses and problems in Texas Youth Commission facilities. - PLN staff
The following is the Statement of Rodney Hulin, the father of a 17-year old abused in an adult prison.

Good morning. My name is Rodney Hulin and I work at a retirement home in Beaumont, Texas. I am here today because of my son. He would be here himself if he could, and he would have spoken out against this plan by Congress to house juvenile offenders in adult prisons. But he can't because he died in one of those prisons.

In 1995, my son, Rodney Jr., was charged with arson when he was 16 years old. Luckily, no one was hurt in the fire. Of course, that doesn't excuse the fact that what my son did was foolish. After admitting his involvement in the offense, my son was sentenced to eight years in an adult prison
