Phoenix New Times detailed stories of abused children but with a chilling twist — these kids were routinely being mistreated by state officials in juvenile corrections facilites. The series and follow-ups sparked a federal inquiry and call for reform by dozens of state leaders and child advocates. That’s the sort of in-depth investigation Phoenix readers have come to rely on from New Times, which has kept the Valley of the Sun sizzling for more than three decades.
