State police withhold prep school abuse investigation report

From Rhode Island (AP)-

Rhode Island state police won't release their report into dozens of sexual abuse allegations at a prestigious boarding school because the matter is being investigated in other states.

The investigation into allegations of abuse of students at St. George's School concluded in June with no criminal charges.

Police denied a request by The Associated Press for the investigative report on Tuesday. The denial said police determined the report isn't releasable under state law because of ongoing investigations in other state jurisdictions.

Capt. Matthew Moynihan said state police turned over information they had to the Suffolk County district attorney's office in Massachusetts and the Waynesville Police Department in North Carolina. He declined to provide further details.
