Fight Child Protection Department Corruption: 

Severe physical attacks, extensive physical labor, and two meals a day.

That's what a 19-year-old man says he suffered from 2004 to 2008 while in the care of several foster homes, leaving him with physical limitations. He filed a civil complaint in federal court Friday against Luzerne County Children and Youth Services, accusing the agency of ignoring his grievances.

The plaintiff, identified as "T.A.P." in the complaint, and his brother were removed from their father's custody in October 2004 after Freeland police answered a call that the boys had been stealing and begging for food.
