805. Center of Progressive Strides
Center of Progressive Strides located in North Carolina closed after one of the employees were arrested and charged for alleged sexual assault. Investigation into the past brought forward charges of statutory sex offense, sexual battery and two counts of indecent liberties. The group home was shut down.
As result of the investigation the police chief stepped down as he was co-owner of the facility under investigation. How such thing could pass under his watch is strange. However the arrested employee worked as policeman so perhaps it is the reason that the alleged abuse could have taken place over some time.
Anyhow it could not have been fun to be there as a teenager.
