The Thacher School Cover-Up
A co-ed private boarding school in Ojai, California, The Thacher School, has been met with a wave of sexual assault allegations from former and current students. In response, the elite school hired an independent law firm to conduct an investigation into these allegations—the results were heartbreaking, revealing 40 years of coverups.
Sexual Misconduct Can Negatively Impact Survivors for Years
Unfortunately, the trauma of being subjected to sexual misconduct can take years to shake off, so much so that it is typical for it to lead to the development of physical and/or mental illnesses either immediately or later in life. When the sexual abuse happens during one’s youth, it can be even harder to move past what happened.
Studies have shown that childhood sexual abuse survivors are at a higher risk of developing various psychiatric disorders, such as:
- Chronic depression
- Anxiety disorders
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Sleep disorders
- Eating disorders
- Substance abuse
Chronic pain, seizures, functional gastrointestinal disorders, and nonspecific pain and somatic symptoms were also common among child sex abuse survivors.

Even if another person has wrongfully blamed you for what happened, we stand firm in our belief that sexual abuse is never the fault of the victim. The law supports us in that statement.
