CONCORD, N. H. – The New Hampshire attorney general’s office has a county department did nothing wrong when he refused to practice against two of the deans from an elite prep school for failing to properly report sexual-assault allegations.
The Phillips Exeter Academy deans were accused by the police in 2016 do not contact the Department of Health and Human Services after a 17-year-old student told they will be attacked in 2015 by another student.
The state attorney general’s office said Friday the Rockingham County attorney’s office not to abuse his prosecutorial discretion in the case. The closed conflicting accounts when the teenager told the deans of the assault made it difficult to prove the charges beyond a reasonable doubt.
The deans say based on the information provided to them that they do not believe that “a reportable offence” took place.
