Prior to joining the Army Navy Academy as a senior administrator, praised by the President of the Academy as “the finest employee at our school," Jeffrey Barton was fired from a boys’ boarding school in Tennessee after allegedly fondling one of the eighth-graders. Among the other men who have come forward, one said Barton abused him when he was a teenage cadet at a South Carolina school in 1983.
Jeffrey Barton, who is 55, was arrested October 17th and charged with molesting two students at Army and Navy, one of them more than 50 times over a two-year period in his office, his cottage, his car and on overnight, school-sanctioned trips. He faces life in prison. He has pleaded not guilty. The molestation is alleged to have included fondling, oral copulation and sodomy.
The lawfirm Manly, Stewart & Finaldi has represented victims of severe hazing in past lawsuits against the Army Navy Academy, and currently represents victims of childhood sexual abuse against the school.
