A study from the state Commission on Correction ripped on the Office of Children and Family Services for hosting a sexually charged "winter social" last December. The report called for disciplinary action against the Goshen Secure Center's top administrators, who allowed a "suspected prostitute" to attend the party with convicted murderers too young to be immediately placed in state prisons. The night allegedly ended sexual encounters caught on surveillance tape.

The OCFS hosted the party as a part of a new policy under Commissioner Gladys Carrion, who believes the mixed-sex socials will help the psychological development of the inmates. But the study said, "There was far less planning, organization and precaution than one would expect at a conventional high-school prom," and the night ended in "residents and guests from engaging in sexual activity."

Inmates were allegedly allowed to choose which girls they wanted to attend, and chose four girls, ages 17 to 20, to be bused in from Albany. Cameras caught one couple in a lap dance and another engaging in oral sex. The report says, "In essence, the senior management of OCFS and the line staff took what was a questionable practice and then poorly implemented it."
