A southwest Missouri center for troubled boys has been sued by a woman who alleges that her 11-year-old was sexually abused at the treatment center. It’s alleged in the lawsuit that an older boy molested and raped the 11-year-old at the Turnaround Ranch, located west of Joplin, and that the center failed to report the abuse to the state. The lawsuit was filed in a state court against Freeman Health System, Ozark Center, Turnaround Ranch, two counselors and a case manager. The boy’s mother says her son was assaulted four times between September and November of last year.
