Michigan police charged 3 workers in connection to the death of a teen boy:
Michigan authorities revealed Wednesday that criminal charges had been brought against three domestic workers allegedly indulge in the death of a 16-year-old boy on May 1:
According to the reports, Lakeside Academy staff accused Michael Mosley and Zachary Solis of manslaughter and child abuse (a violation of the second-degree childcare organization that resulted in death). The facility’s nurse, Heather MacLogan, has been charged with manslaughter because of high ignorance and failure to fulfill her legal duty to obtain medical treatment.
The worker choked the victim:
Fredericks died two days after Mosley and Solis tied him up for throwing a sandwich in the facility’s cafeteria. Monitoring footage reportedly showed that an employee pressed his weight on Federico’s chest for 10 minutes.
A $ 100 million lawsuit against the Kalamazoo facility claimed that Fredericks shouted “I can’t breathe” before losing consciousness. Reports indicate that employees waited 12 minutes to call 911 and manage CPR after the teenager did not respond.
The teen boy tried to save himself:
A report published by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) accused employees of the Lakeside Academy of clicking on Fredericks, spraying water on their faces, and raising their heads before examining their pulse. Officials said witness reports also indicated that the teenager was moving in the mouth and could suffocate the tongue, reportedly.
Prosecutors made the announcement the same day the county coroner spent Frederick’s death. An autopsy identified “suffocating restraint” by killing the teenager.
Last week, the state Ministry of Health terminated its contracts with the Lakeside Academy, which means that foster teenagers and the youth system will not be placed in the Kalamazoo facility. Government officials said 125 young people were transferred accordingly.
