Bronx DA to Probe Horace Mann

The Bronx district attorney's office said on Monday that it is interested in speaking to anyone who was allegedly abused at the tony prep school Horace Mann, although the office did not say whether a criminal investigation will be opened. New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn wrote a letter on Monday to Bronx District Attorney Robert Johnson seeking an “appropriate review of the matter,” saying that there is evidence of a “pervasive culture” that allowed the abuse for nearly 20 years. Johnson said he will “reach out to the Horace Mann community and encourage them to report incidents of such behavior.”
