Appeals Board Considers Settlement in Iowa Juvenile Home Case
DES MOINES, Iowa -- The now-closed Iowa Juvenile Home could cost the state another quarter of a million dollars. The state Appeals Board is considering a $235,000 settlement with a former patient. Jessica Turner filed a lawsuit saying she was kept in isolation for 280 days, banned from doing homework, and wasn’t able to communicate with anyone on the outside.
