Sexual Abuse at Private Boarding Schools – Phillips Exeter Academy

On Behalf of | Mar 3, 2017 | Firm News |

Many of you have probably read the recent media accounts of sex abuse scandals at private boarding schools in New Hampshire and throughout New England, the most recent relevations coming from Phillips Exeter Academy in Exeter, New Hampshire.  While law enforcement authorities in the relevant communities are investigating these disclosures from the criminal standpoint, victims of these sexual assaults, regardless of when they took place, likely have civil remedies that they can pursue against the schools.   The claims essentially center around the school failing to provide a safe environment for their minor students, and hiring or retaining perpetrating faculty when they knew or should have known these people presented a serious danger to minors.   The Law Offices of Peter E. Hutchins, PLLC in Manchester, New Hampshire have handled hundreds of civil cases involving the sexual abuse of minors, including abuse taking place at boarding schools.   Feel free to call and speak directly to Attorney Peter Hutchins.
