Indianapolis school signs agreement to avoid prosecution


INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Federal prosecutors say they’ve reached a deal under which an exclusive private Indianapolis school can avoid prosecution for not properly reporting an inappropriate relationship between a former basketball coach and a 15-year-old female student.

U.S. Attorney Josh Minkler and Park Tudor School Chairman Tom Grein signed a 10-page document released Tuesday stating Head of School Matthew Miller concealed information related to the case against coach Kyle Cox. Miller committed suicide in January.

Park Tudor agreed to conditions including not breaking any laws and promptly reporting allegations of suspected child abuse and neglect for three years, or it risks prosecution for concealment of a felony.

Cox was sentenced to 14 years in prison after pleading guilty in May to a charge of coercion and enticement for trying to have sex with the student.
