Boot camp suit may add guards

Published October 28, 2006


TALLAHASSEE - Parents of a 14-year-old who died in January after guards roughed him up at a boot camp want seven guards added as defendants in their federal civil lawsuit, their attorney said Friday.

In an amended complaint, attorney Ben Crump included guards Henry Dickens, Charles Enfinger, Patrick Garrick, Raymond Hauck, Charles Helms, Henry McFadden and Joseph Walsh in the lawsuit.

Crump said he was forced to name the guards because the Bay County Sheriff's Office and state Department of Juvenile Justice refuse to accept any responsibility for Martin Lee Anderson's death. "Everybody's saying, 'It's not me,' " he said.
