TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - A year after the former principal at Tampa Day School was sentenced to 10 years in prison for sexually abusing two teenage boys, the school is facing allegations of negligence from a student’s mother.

The Tampa Bay Times (https://bit.ly/23vBES2) reports that in a lawsuit filed late Tuesday in Hillsborough County’s civil court, the mother of a Tampa Day School student who was molested in 2014 says the school’s leaders failed to act on multiple warning signs indicating that James Larkin’s relationship with her then-14-year-old son was not normal.

The 65-year-old Larkin pleaded guilty last April to sexually abusing the student, as well as another teenager. He is also named in the lawsuit.

The school specializes in teaching children with mild-to-moderate learning disabilities.
