Wisconsin DOC reassigns leadership at juvenile system

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Two top officials handling Wisconsin's juvenile justice system in the Milwaukee office are being reassigned following an internal investigation into office mismanagement.

The state's Department of Corrections said Thursday it will relieve Regional Juvenile Community Corrections Chief Audrian Brown and Corrections Field Supervisor Alfred Beans. They will be assigned to other agency duties starting Sunday.

DOC began an internal investigation into the division's regional office in Milwaukee following the shooting death of 34-year-old Sharon Staples in August. Staples was four months pregnant. Three teenagers are charged in the case, including two who were under the division's supervision.

The department says there were issues relating to employee oversight. Brown and Beans have been on administrative leave since the shooting.
