Lawyers who represent several St. George’s School sexual assault victims said they have now heard from 40 people who were raped or molested by former St. George’s School staffers and students during the 1970s and 1980s and some as recently as 2004.

The former students and their attorneys called for the school to commission an independent investigation into the sexual abuse.
