- Boys Town Police Chief William Clark, who declined to be interviewed for this article, refused to provide police incident reports detailing the 12 reports of rape on campus, even with the names of minors redacted.

- Like other homes for troubled kids, Boys Town had rules and lots of them, she said. No cell phones, no social media, no calls home for longer than a half hour, no holding hands or kissing boys, and no talking back. Her every behavior, at home and at school on the same campus, was tracked and logged daily on a point system that could result in privileges lost or gained.

- The nonprofit pairs children in each of 50 family-style foster homes with a married couple who are supposed to help monitor their behavior. The nonprofit also has satellite residential programs in New Orleans; Portsmouth, Rhode Island; and Orlando and Tallahassee, Florida.

- Rivera admitted during the investigation that he had sex repeatedly with a 15-year-old ward from Texas, court records show. When the girl threatened to expose Rivera before his arrest, he paid her $2,000 in hush money, the records show. He was convicted of first-degree attempted sex abuse on a child, a felony.

In 2020, a Nebraska judge sentenced Rivera, then 36, to 20 to 30 years in prison. In 2022, he died in prison of COVID-19, according to the Nebraska Department of Corrections.
