Maryland school finds evidence faculty abused students


OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) – A private boarding school in Maryland says it has found evidence that five former faculty members sexually assaulted more than 20 students over several decades.

The Baltimore Sun reports the McDonogh School in Owings Mills sent families a letter about the findings Tuesday.

The letter says the allegations don’t involve current faculty or students. It says an investigation was launched in 2016 when a former student from the 1980s told officials he was assaulted by two former faculty members, both of whom are now dead.

The investigation found those teachers assaulted 19 male students. It also found that three other faculty members, whose identities weren’t released, sexually assaulted five female students.
