A former New Hampshire youth detention center counselor has been charged with sexually assaulting a 15-year-old who was being held at the center and giving him and another teen alcohol and guns.
The Concord Monitor reports the attorney for 25-year-old Kirstie Bean, of Concord, pleaded not guilty on Bean's behalf last week.

Bean lists the center in court papers as her former employer. A spokesperson says she doesn't work there anymore.
Authorities say the sexual assaults happened between August 2015 and August 2016.
Authorities say Bean also gave pistols to the 15-year-old and an 18-year-old, bought alcohol for both teens and allowed the 15-year-old to drive.
