Youth prison guard placed on leave amid media scrutiny

Jul 12, 2012

The Ohio Department of Youth Services has placed a juvenile prison guard on paid leave because of media attention over the homicide of the 2-year-old son of his one-time girlfriend. The agency says the questions involve the October beating death of Bri'Sean Gamble in Stark County. The boy's
grandmother, Phyllis Wheat, tells The Associated Press guard Alan Aeschlimann was living with the boy's mother at the time. The department says the attention is affecting daily operations at Indian River Juvenile Correctional facility in Massillon.
