Allegations of sex assaults, misconduct at St. George's won't go to court

From Rhode Island-

An extensive seven-month investigation into alleged systemic sexual abuse at St. George's School found "no prosecutable criminal conduct," and has been closed, State Police Col. Steven G. O'Donnell and Rhode Island Attorney General Peter F. Kilmartin said Thursday.

"Unfortunately for those who came forward, they will not be able to seek justice within the criminal justice system due to the applicable statutes defining conduct, and statute of limitations," their joint statement said.

The investigation focused on allegations of sexual assault and sexual misconduct "by seven former faculty members;one current employee; and three former students upon students" at the elite private Episcopal boarding school in Middletown.
