Maryland: Juvenile justice

Newly hired monitor from Conn. resigns

A Connecticut official hired to keep an eye on two Maryland juvenile detention centers has resigned from the post before even starting the job. Connecticut Juvenile Justice Director Donald W. DeVore withdrew from the part-time position after Connecticut's governor reportedly sent a letter reminding him that his first responsibilities were to children in that state. In September, Maryland hired DeVore to evaluate progress at the Charles H. Hickey Jr. School and the Cheltenham Youth Facility. He was hired under an agreement with the U.S. Justice Department that requires an independent monitor.
