Description

KSTP found government workers who accepted illegal gifts and perks to help keep beds full at two drug and alcohol treatment centers in the Twin Cities. Owners of the treatment centers routinely accepted rapists, murderers and child molesters while reassuring elected officials and neighbors they didn't accept violent criminals. All of it at taxpayers' expense. KSTP also documented how the owners of the treatment centers ignored staff concerns abut inadequate security. At least three of the staff members were sexually assaulted by clients who had violent criminal histories.
