Subject: Sexual Abuse

Date: April 6-Sept. 8



When news first broke that a developmentally disabled girl said she had been sexually assaulted in a high-school auditorium, it seemed to be the story of a tragic crime. But digging by Bill Bush and other Dispatch reporters revealed a much more troubling story--school officials had resisted calling police because they feared that would attract attention of the media. Further reporting found critics suggesting that this was a pattern within Columbus Public Schools.
