DSS shelter counselor accused of raping teen girl under his care
Among the 20 Department of Correction employees on paid leave is a 38-year-old administrator accused of raping a teenage girl at a state-funded youth shelter where he held a second job as an overnight “awake counselor.”
Ibrahim Rahim, the DOC’s director of diversity, was placed on paid leave from his $62,790-a-year job Sept. 30 after allegations he sexually assaulted the girl in 2003 and 2004 while she was at the Survival Shelter in Weymouth.
Rahim of Brockton strongly denies the charges, his lawyer said.
The 16-year-old alleged victim, in an interview with the Herald, said she is still frightened of Rahim, who also has worked as a DOC Muslim chaplain. “He would come into my room when the other staff went to sleep,” she said. “I would do anything to get out of that room.”
“This is an inherent risk when you work with troubled adolescents,” Sullivan said. “We’ve uncovered other factors that strongly show that this did not happen.”

Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?
