627. Kentucky Youth Academy

Kentucky Youth Academy located in Willisburg and Pikesville became the center of an investigation around 2002. It was alleged abuse of children and suspected use of corporal punishment, which caused the investigation.

The facilities were founded in 1997 and 1999. While being created as a non-profit operation, the manager were able to get a large sum of $500,000 per year.

The Juvenile Justice Department (JJD) closed the facilities in 2002 after six weeks of investigation.

It could not have been fun to be there as a teenager.
