Rhode Island state police won't release their report into dozens of sexual abuse allegations at a prestigious boarding school because the matter is being investigated in other states.

The investigation into allegations of abuse of students at St. George's School in Middletown concluded in June with no criminal charges.

Police denied a request by The Associated Press for the investigative report on Tuesday.

The denial says police determined the report isn't releasable under state law because of ongoing investigations in other state jurisdictions.

Attorney Eric MacLeish represents some of the victims. He says he's aware of potential criminal cases that could be brought in North Carolina and Massachusetts against former St. George's staff members.

Victim Anne Scott says she's disappointed a detailed accounting of police efforts won't be made public.
