A report released Thursday shows a more detailed picture of the sexual abuse students endured at an elite prep school in Rhode Island in the 1970s and '80s.

An attorney, who conducted the independent investigation, released a nearly 400 page report. It found 51 students were abused by 10 staff members at St. George's during those two decades. One of the employees was an assistant chaplain and coach, another a choirmaster, another a nurse.

An athletic trainer, who is no longer living, was said to have raped or sexually abused one-fifth of all the girls who attended the school during his time there — at least 31 girls.

Attorney Eric MacLeish, who represents abuse victims from St. George's, joined WBUR's All Things Considered.

This segment aired on September 1, 2016.
