Juvenile Offenders in Clay County Temporarily Moved

Juvenile offenders in Clay County will now be going to the Southwest Indiana Regional Youth Village in Vincennes temporarily, due to Ladoga’s Muskegon River Youth Home of Indiana closing in December. The Ladoga facility is undergoing changes that will make it less of a detention center and more like a residential facility. Clay County had looked into building a center to house only juveniles, as they cannot be placed with adult offenders. But Clay County only sees an average of 1 juvenile detained per day, so the cost wasn’t economical.
