- The Brownwood Bulletin says law enforcement has finished another investigation of sexual abuse at a TYC facility, this time involving three young women that "happened in a small storage closet." The employee in question resigne in August 2005 but was not arrested or prosecuted.
- Two guards who were later fired for neglect were away from their posts when a boy in Corsicana was brutally beaten. Reported the Dallas News: "Records obtained by The Dallas Morning News under the Texas Public Information Act include accounts of guards striking handcuffed inmates, encouraging inmates to fight one another and standing idle while beatings occurred. In one case, a guard threatened to throw a handcuffed inmate off a roof."
- Ralph Blumenthal at the New York Times has the story of another abused youth who spent his TYC stint at the Giddings state school.
