CONCORD, N.H. — The director of the Office of the Child Advocate is calling for cooperation instead of finger-pointing after the state issued a lengthy response to abuse allegations at New Hampshire’s youth detention center. The Disability Rights Center issued a report last week saying staff at the Sununu Youth Services Center routinely violated state law in using dangerous face-down restraint methods, including in the case of a 14-year-old boy with emotional and behavioral disabilities who ended up with a broken shoulder blade in December. The state attorney general and commissioner of Health and Human Services responded Tuesday, calling the report unfounded and irresponsible and accusing the center of cherry-picking information about the incident.
