ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A youth program officer with the Bernalillo County Youth Services Center faces felony charges after allegedly asking one 17-year-old girl to beat up another.

The Albuquerque Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1F7eplg ) that Rachel deSantiago was named in a criminal complaint filed in Metropolitan Court. The complaint says deSantiago promised to get the girl who gave the beating something in return for her actions. The 17-year-old victim had allegedly been causing problems.

The attacker struck the other girl 15 times in the head and face during the assault.

A spokesman for the Youth Services Center says deSantiago is on paid administrative leave and that she has never faced formal disciplinary action prior to this incident.
