A federal lawsuit has been filed in Idaho, alleging a young man suffered brutal abuse and gang rape at the hands of employees from a Catholic school, which ultimately led to his premature death at the age of 29. Now, his mother is seeking justice.

The mother asserts that she entrusted her son's rehabilitation to a now-defunct Christian boarding school in Missouri when her son was struggling with behavioral issues. She has since pursued a federal lawsuit, alleging that the abuse and brutal gang rape inflicted by school employees led to his premature death at the age of 29.

The Springfield News-Leader reports that Kathleen Britt sent her late son, Jason Britt, to Agape Boarding School in Stockton, Missouri, in 2009. She hoped he would encounter a "safe, friendly, Christian environment free from drugs and alcohol."

However, legal documents allege that what Jason Britt experienced was more akin to a "concentration camp or a torture colony disguised as a religious institution."

In an interview with The Kansas City Star, the then 27-year-old man disclosed that a few months after his arrival at the school as a 16-year-old, he endured a horrific rape incident. He claimed that some of the employees pinned him face-down on the ground while three men took turns raping him with a broom. "I believe they attempted to humiliate me in a way that I couldn’t dismiss, with the aim of breaking my spirit," said the late Jason Britt.

Kathleen Britt noted that after she removed her son from the school, he took up weightlifting and began abusing steroids out of a desire to protect himself from ever experiencing such violence again.

Unfortunately, these actions only exacerbated his physical and mental health problems. Jason Britt passed away in February 2022 due to organ failure brought on by steroid abuse.

Other boys have since brought forward lawsuits alleging sexual abuse at this school. Moreover, the institution has since closed its doors, citing "financial issues" as the official reason.
