The former principal of the Colorado School for the Deaf and the Blind denies allegations he covered up sexual abuse at the school.
Two sets of parents of two blind students who are suing the school and its former leader claim five children were sexually assaulted at the school by another student and the acts were covered up. The assaults allegedly took place over a period of years begining in 2009. Their lawsuit was in federal court Thursday for a hearing, with court papers filed on behalf of the former principal Louis Tutt. An arrest warrant for failure to report suspected child abuse, a misdemeanor, was previously issued but Tutt remains out of state. The warrant for his arrest remains active.
