Accused in a 2005 report of sexually abusing an 8- or 9-year-old boy in 1948 or 1949 by having him sit under her desk as a punishment. She would allegedly “put her dress over the child’s head … and she made him push his hands into her genitals.” Many students were punished this way. Parents reported the incidents to the school at the time.
Our Database of Publicly Accused does not state or imply that individuals facing allegations are guilty of a crime or liable for civil claims. The reports contained in the database are merely allegations. The U.S. legal system presumes that a person accused of or charged with a crime is innocent until proven guilty. Similarly, individuals who may be defendants in civil actions are presumed not to be liable for such claims unless a plaintiff proves otherwise. Admissions of guilt or liability are not typically a part of civil or private settlements. For more information, see our posting policy.
