TRACY, Calif. (AP) - Ten of thousands of dollars in donations have poured in to help a 16-year-old boy who police say was held
captive and severely abused in a Tracy home for more than a year.

Next week, a Sacramento County judge is scheduled to decide how to manage the $34,000 given to the teen. Concerned donors from
around the country and Europe wanted to help the boy following
reports that he was chained to a fireplace, beaten with a baseball
bat, burned and starved before he escaped on December 1, 2008.

A Sacramento nonprofit law firm has been collecting monetary donations for the teen under court supervision for the last month.

A judge will decide whether to set up a special needs trust or
some other kind of fund for the teen.
