Agreement Reached in Mississippi Juvenile Detention Case

Children and teens at a Mississippi juvenile detention center will no longer be locked in cells all day without reason or forced to sleep on the floor in a squalid, overcrowded facility following an agreement the Southern Poverty Law Center has reached in a federal lawsuit.

Thanks to everyone who helped SPLC bring attention to the conditions at the Harrison County Juvenile Detention Center.
