That place is a joke I spent time there and in my time there were several female officers fired for having the wrong kind of relationship with the residents and yet all they did was fire them they did not persue any type of other charges. If you reported any officer for doing bad things you get black balled it is a sad sad place I am glad I retired I spent over 20+ years there and the last 3 years was the worst I blame it on the management it starts at the top and works its way down the chain, I would almost bet you a major leadership change is coming in Charelston and through out the state including the Industrial Home.

That place is pretty bad. They have weeded out two out of the three worst females up there and she is next. She thinks she is above everyone but Karma is a mutha.

i knew someone that worked there and I was there once when I was a teenager, that place is filled with nothing but child molestors. Anyone can get a job there if they havent been previously convicted of a crime. Thats all that happened...guards would have sex with the kids...usually male guards taking advantage of the teenage boys. The kids are not treated fairly...its really a sad situation
Wish I knew U cuz i was there 2

Ex Resident is absolutely correct. A male counselor had sex with a female inmate, she had the baby, he was aloowed to quit. She is back in there today. Nothing was ever done to him. He was married at the time with children. He should have been charged. There was several female staff that were having sex with the residents and none of them were ever charged, they were allowed to walk away with no charges. Report it, thats some funny stuff right there!!

They really have some good supervision up there for the residents. Seems there was 5 residents off the hiil being supervised by 6 correctional officers.The residents managed to drink 2 fifths of whiskey and were so drunk they passed out. They actually blew a 0.20 when they returned to the facility. Wait till the paper gets ahold of this one. I sure hope the officers get treated the same as the guy who got fired for letting two boys fight but they wont. It will be covered up just like everything else. Good job WVIHY, you got some top notch idiots working there, wonder where the booze came from?

The boys are back off the hill again today. I wonder if they will be unsupervised and allowed to get plastered like they did last week. Its a shame that this wasnt reported after both young men had to be taken to the hospital and could have died!! I may just call the paper today...facts are facts!

If you call the paper dont forget to tell them about the unit manager who allowd two kids to get in a fight in his office and then got fired.
