Harassment engulfs Lexington Catholic

Here's another story about a Catholic high school in Kentucky being mired in serious allegations of harassment - just like at Bishop Brossart.

At least 7 recent students at Lexington Catholic High School are claiming they were victims of harassment or assault at the school, and they've sought legal counsel. The attorney for some of the students says the school has engaged in a cover-up lasting for decades.

Allegations range from racial harassment to sexual assault at a school-sponsored function. One of the perpetrators was charged with terroristic threatening. At least one case may even be investigated as a hate crime.

The school has now vowed to cooperate with authorities in investigating the incidents. That's something Brossart never had to worry about, since Brossart had so much clout with the authorities that it was never investigated.
