New allegations develop against the Lake Grove School for troubled kids

Parents who sent their teen to the Lake Grove School for troubled kids say he was sexually abused while sleeping in his dorm room.

Frank and Nicole, who did not want their last name revealed, say they sent their son to the school to get help with an emotional disorder. Now they say he was sexually abused in January of 2005, but didn?t speak up until this past May. Their son reportedly told two separate agencies of the assault.

If the allegations against the Lake Grove School are true, this would be the third sexual assault at the school in roughly three years. Police reports show a 12-year-old boy was assaulted in a school bathroom in 2003. In 2004, a 19-year-old student was accused of raping a 15-year-old girl.

A Nassau County spokesperson says they would remove the kids from the school if the latest allegations are true. About 20 other investigations against the school are currently being investigated.
