In the news

On May 15 - 2008 a group of six girls aged between 15 and 18 did beat a girl - also living in the group home - up. The beating involving kicking took an hour and she ended up being thrown into a hawthorn.

After formally arrested and charged, the girls were returned to the same group home because they were already undergoing punishment by being placed at the group home for other crimes or social incidents.

Due to a future conviction their stay at the group home will properly be extended. But the victim has to endure to live next door to her molesters [2] [3].
