As with hundreds of other children in recent years, the state had been keeping the girl in a hotel because no foster families or group homes would take her. The child was awaiting counseling for “sexually aggressive youth” and could not be left unsupervised with children more than two years younger than her, according to state records. The previous month, the girl had assaulted three workers while they supervised her overnight in a hotel.
