Department of Justice Investigation Into Lubbock State School Grows

The 2006 Justice Department investigation into the Lubbock State School has been extended by the department to cover all 13 Texas State Schools.

The DOJ is using the "Civil Rights of Institutionalized Persons Act" or CRIPA to do this investigation. A DOJ spokesperson said they're investigating what she called "systemic abuse" at these state schools. But a Texas state school spokesperson says vast improvements have been made here Lubbock and that the extended investigation was expected and is typical of the DOJ after they investigate one facility.

We'll hear from a spokesperson for Texas State Schools on NewsChannel 11 at 10.
