Integrity House: Arrests, rape, assault
« on: June 03, 2013, 02:19:10 AM »
Director, supervisor of youth center arrested for rape, assault (KSL.com, June 1 2013)

Quote from: "From the article"
EDAR CITY — Police have arrested two employees of a troubled youth treatment center after allegations of sexual assault at the facility were lodged May 21.

Daniel Taylor, 42, was arrested Friday after police received reports of sexual offenses at Integrity House, a treatment center for troubled teenage girls, police said. Jamie Frost, 28, was also arrested during the investigation, on two charges of assault.

According to police, Taylor was the executive director of Integrity House, where he allegedly sexually abused multiple teen girls. Frost, a supervisor at the treatment center, was charged with assaulting a resident and a female staff member.

Taylor was charged with assault, child abuse, three counts of first degree felony rape and three counts of first degree sexual abuse of a child. Police said some of the charges were stricter than normal, due to his position of trust.

"We are working with the parents of the youth who are there still," said Sgt. Jamie Roden, Cedar City Police department. "Integrity House is still operating, and we are working with the parents to make sure they have a full understanding even if their child wasn't specifically involved."

The case is still under investigation and more information will be posted as it becomes available.

As it relates to our other conversations, Integrity House will,likely go out of business because parents will stop sending their kid before the state of Utah will suspend or revoke the license of a facility where the executive director was raping girls.

That in a nutshell is the difference between the public and private market.

Apparently not the first time this sort of thing has come up.

Perhaps more evidence that these kinds of things don't come up clear out of the blue.  I think if we went through the archives here, we'd be able to ascertain which programs are the really terrible ones operated by unqualified scumbags.  

There are clearly "bad cop" programs that try to create behavior change through force, control, and punishment, and there are "good cop" programs that try to create behavior change through manipulative, purposeful relationship building.  

And while I wouldn't recommend this if a parent was looking for a program, because you just never know.  But you can tell a lot from a website what an organization's approach is if you know what to look for.

The brothers (one arrested) also ran "Academy of Eastern Arizona" som years back. They had some kind of motivation speech arrangement with "Re-Creation Retreat" in Fredonia, Arizona.

The facility provides a number of jobs to the area. It counted more in the end than justice. The alleged problems and illnesses found by the investigation was claimed illnesses created by the employees to cover up their boss's actions.

Sex charges dismissed against youth home worker
by Tracie Sullivan, The Spectum, April 4 2014

CEDAR CITY — The case against a 42-year-old Cedar City man facing eight felonies involving sexual assault were dismissed Friday after victims in the case allegedly admitted to lying.

In a press release issued by the Iron County Attorney’s Office, prosecuting attorney Scott Garrett said the charges against Daniel Taylor were dismissed after his office, in conjunction with the Cedar City Police Department, launched an investigation into the case during which they learned that some of the witnesses and victims had lied about the initial allegations.

According to the press release, several of the alleged victims are also currently “unable and unwilling to participate in the prosecution due to severe psychiatric and emotional issues.”

“Once we learned of and verified these problems in the case, we moved the court to dismiss the charges,” Garrett said.

Taylor was once the executive director of Integrity House, a Cedar City residential treatment center for troubled girls between the ages of 12 and 17.

Officials reported at the time of Taylor’s arrest June 3 that the Cedar City Police Department had conducted a 10-day investigation in May after receiving information concerning possible sexual offenses being perpetrated on the female residents in the home.

The charges against Taylor included four first-degree felonies of rape and aggravated sexual abuse of a child, and simple assault, a class B misdemeanor, and child abuse, a class A misdemeanor.

Some of the charges against Taylor were enhanced at the time due to his position of trust he held over the alleged victims.

Cedar City man 'gratified' that sex abuse case dismissed
By Emiley Morgan, Deseret News, April 4 2014

CEDAR CITY — All charges have been dismissed against a Cedar City man accused of sexually abusing three girls living at a home for troubled teens after it was discovered that several of the alleged victims lied.

State prosecutors requested that all eight charges filed against Daniel Sandberg Taylor, 43, be dismissed in light of a follow-up investigation that showed "several of the alleged victims and witnesses lied about the underlying charges," according to a motion filed in 5th District Court.

Judge Michael Westfall implemented an order dismissing the charges Friday— the same day the motion to dismiss was filed.

"Mr. Daniel Taylor is gratified with the dismissal of all charges filed against him by the Iron County Attorney's Office," defense attorney Blaine Hofeling said in a statement. "Mr. Taylor has at all times and continues to maintain his innocence."

Hofeling said his client is looking forward to trying to rebuild his life. He also said Taylor wants to thank all who believed he was innocent and supported him throughout the legal process.

A message left for Iron County chief deputy attorney Troy Little was not immediately returned Tuesday.

Taylor had been charged with three counts of rape and three counts of aggravated sexual abuse of a child, all first-degree felonies. He was also charged with child abuse, a class A misdemeanor, and assault, a class B misdemeanor, in connection with alleged incidents involving clients and employees at Integrity House in Cedar City.

The home serves as a treatment center for girls between the ages of 12 and 17 who are experiencing emotional and behavioral issues.

Taylor was accused of raping a 17-year-old resident of the facility three times between Feb. 1 and Feb. 28, 2013, according to a police affidavit filed in court. He was also charged with inappropriately touching two other girls, ages 12 and 13. The assault charge stemmed from a disagreement Taylor had with a female staff member in which he is accused of shoving the woman to the floor and twisting her wrist, according to the affidavit.

The allegations were supported by physical evidence, as well as testimony from an eyewitness and others in the facility, police said.

In the motion to dismiss, Little wrote that in addition to lying, "several of the alleged victims in this case are unable and unwilling to participate in the prosecution due to (severe) psychiatric and emotional issues."

Taylor was terminated from his position at the home after his arrest.

Because, as we all know, raping girls with mental problems is A-OK.

Were the girls still trapped there this whole time? Who wants to take a wild guess as to how many times they were told over and over that they lied about it after he raped them?
