Inaction on complaint leaves prep school victims frustrated

Rhode Island licensing officials have not resolved a nearly year-old complaint that a former boarding school psychologist did not do enough to address sexual abuse reports.

Two women who were among at least 31 girls abused by an athletic trainer at St. George's School in Middletown asked that Peter Kosseff's license be revoked. The first complaint was filed Dec. 26, 2015 and the other soon after.

They tell The Associated Press they are bothered the complaint is still pending and Kosseff is still practicing.

An independent report found Kosseff took action in some instances, such as helping fire a choirmaster for abusing a student. But it found at other times Kosseff didn't move quickly to stop misconduct.

Kosseff and the state health department would not comment, citing the pending case.
