The former chief of committed services for the D.C. Department of Youth Rehabilitation Services (DYRS), David Muhammad, has resigned from his post as Alameda County's chief probation officer, after an investigation by California authorities into accusations by a female subordinate that he sexually molested her.
The former chief of committed services for the D.C. Department of Youth Rehabilitation Services (DYRS) was accused of stalking and molesting a female subordinate in the District years before similar accusations recently surfaced against him while chief probation officer in Alameda County, Calif.
D.C. officials say no records exist documenting inspections, escapes or unusual incidents at a Northwest Washington group home for troubled youth run by a politically connected nonprofit that has seen at least one teenager in its care accused of homicide and another brutally slain in the last year.
He said he confronted the DYRS director in 2005, Vincent N. Schiraldi, and Mr. Schiraldi said, "I don't give a [expletive]. I just need people who can do the work."
