In 2004 and 2005, a 12-13 year old boy who was staying at Boys Home of the South in Belton reported to a DSS caseworker that he was repeatedly raped and tortured by a member of the staff and another boy in the home. The now 24 year old has accused the Boys Home of the South and the Department of Social Services for withholding files related to other incidents of child abuse within the facility and dragging out the discovery phase of his 3-year-old lawsuit against the state.
Hite and Stone have called upon SCDSS to realease any files they have that are related to other cases of child abuse within the facility but DSS has declined, claiming the documents would violate the privacy of those children.
