The Los Angeles Times reports today that the LAPD has arrested a school official who covered up reports that a teacher was sexually molesting students.
The dean of students at a South Los Angeles school was arrested
Thursday for allegedly concealing evidence that one of his colleagues,
former Assistant Principal Steve Thomas Rooney, had a sexual
relationship with a student.
Alan Hubbard, 49, was charged with two felony counts of being an
accessory after the fact to a crime and dissuading a witness, according
to the Los Angeles County district attorney's office. After
surrendering to Los Angeles police, he was being held in lieu of
$120,000 bail late Thursday and was scheduled to be arraigned today.
What infuriates me is that the police don't arrest Church officials who cover up sexual abuse by priests. The law applies to Church officials as much as it does to educators. What the Church did by protecting child molesters is every bit as reprehensible…and illegal.
