LPR Team Investigates Dozier School for Boys: A Mission of Truth and Reparation for a Suffering Long Forgotten
On May 12, 2022, LPR Attorneys Mike Papantonio and Troy Rafferty, along with LPR Investigator Carol Moore, traveled to Marianna, Florida, to walk the site of a horrific tragedy—one that lasted over 100 years. The Arthur G. Dozier School for Boys (formerly known as the Florida School for Boys) was a “reformatory” school from 1900 to 2011. Far from reforming, the goals of this institution were to exploit, beat, torture, and sometimes murder the boys who were sent there. The town knew. The courts knew. Police, legislators, and regulators knew. Nobody did a thing to stop it.
