Bronx DA Creates Hotline for Prep School Horace Mann Sexual Abuse Victims

The Bronx  District Attorney's office on Tuesday established a special hotline to report  suspected sexual abuse at a prestigious New York City prep school.
District Attorney Robert  Johnson is encouraging anyone with information about possible inappropriate  behavior by staff members at the Horace Mann School to come forward. The move comes after a story  published in The New  York Times Magazine last week said the elite school was plagued in the 1980s  and early 1990s by a series of teachers who sexually abused students.
The students, mostly identified  in the article by letters in their names, accused at least three now-deceased  teachers of repeatedly molesting them and other pupils. They described an  atmosphere in which the social lines between teachers and students were  routinely blurred, and then taken advantage of by pedophiles......Johnson said Tuesday his office  received a copy of the school's policy on sexual abuse, and was researching laws  that may allow the office to prosecute cases, should anyone come forward.  Mandating Reporting laws differ by state.The hotline number is  718-838-7392.
