Amended suit alleges new abuses at military school

March 24, 2012


— New allegations of abuses at a Kansas military boarding school have been raised in a revised lawsuit brought by parents of former cadets from across the nation.

An amended complaint filed Friday in federal court adds more plaintiffs to the case against St. John’s Military School in Salina.

The school has denied there is a culture of abuse or failure to supervise.

A California student who attended St. John’s for only four days suffered two broken legs. An X-ray attached to the court documents shows the bone displaced several inches above the knee from the alleged abuse.

Another exhibit in the filing depicts a uniformed Texas cadet gagged, blindfolded and bound with black duct tape.
