— A Durham group home settled a lawsuit involving workers who hired a prostitute to have sex with mentally handicapped boys.

The incident happened three years ago at the Glenn School IRT.

Prosecutors say two employees made four boys watch them have sex with a prostitute. The boys also claimed the counselors paid the woman to have sex with them.

The two counselors pleaded guilty and served six months in jail.

The state later shut down the home.
