The school leadership of one of Texas’ largest Christian schools have been criminally charged for allegedly hiding a student’s sexual assault.
Midland Christian School’s superintendent, principal, vice principal, athletic director and head baseball coach were recently charged and arrested after a Jan. 20 alleged hazing incident reportedly involving sexual assault that went unreported.
When authorities were notified of the assault, school officials refused to cooperate with the investigation and attempted to conceal information around the incident. All of the school’s employees that were arrested have since bonded out, but the investigation is ongoing.
