The Orlando Sentinel published stories on April 11, 2004 documenting the abuse committed against juveniles in Florida's Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ). The state welfare agency found 661 "cases of abuse and neglect at agency facilities over nine years." Then, on December 19, 2004, The Orlando Sentinel reported that the DJJ transferred offenders to long-term facilities, thus lengthening their stay for months and years.
