BRONX DISTRICT ATTORNEY: Statement Regarding Review of Sexual Abuse at the Horace Mann School


Friday, April 26, 2013
STATEMENT REGARDING AN EXTENSIVE REVIEW BY THE OFFICE OF THE BRONX DISTRICT ATTORNEY INTO ALLEGATIONS OF SEXUAL ABUSE AT THE HORACE MANN SCHOOL
In June of 2012, a New York Times Magazine article detailed a pattern of sexual abuse at Horace Mann School in the Bronx.  In response to that article and a request by the New York City Council, The Bronx District Attorney’s Office set up a hotline for victims and others to report allegations of abuse directly to our Child Abuse and Sex Crimes Bureau. We established a line of communication with the current administration of Horace Mann and began to review the school’s child abuse reporting policies and procedures. We also pursued other investigative leads.

A systemic pattern of suspected sexual abuse existed at an elite New York City prep school from the 1970s until the mid-1990s, but the statute of limitations to prosecute them has expired, prosecutors said Friday. The Bronx district attorney's office and the New York Police Department launched an investigation into allegations of abuse at TheHorace Mann School after a New York TimesMagazine article last summer that said the academy was plagued by teachers who sexually abused children in the 1970s.
