“Recent reports of sexual misconduct and inappropriate relationships by state employees at the Texas Juvenile Justice Department are reprehensible and necessitate an appropriate response,” said Governor Abbott. “Action is needed to guarantee the protection of the youth in the care and custody of the State of Texas.
