Posted: Updated:
(WTVM) -

The number of unresolved sex abuse investigations at Georgia's juvenile detention centers goes far beyond the 20 that prompted the suspensions of 18 investigators and their supervisor.

There were over 700 unresolved internal investigations over an 18 month period.

141 unresolved investigations meet the Department of Justice's standard for sexual abuse or harassment by other juveniles or detention center staff.

A report from the Department of Justice listed Sumter RYDC in Americus and three other Georgia facilities among the worst in the country for sexual abuse of detainees.
