‘Worst thing that ever happened to me’: Former teen tells how he was sexually abused at a Virginia boarding school
Posted On August 7, 2021
A former teen has described the worst thing that has ever happened in his life.
Ryan, now 19, told ABC News he was a student at Hampton Creek High School in Virginia when he said he was molested by another student.
He said he tried to leave but was held back by administrators.
He was 18 years old when he was arrested and charged with sexual abuse.
He pleaded guilty to one count of sexual abuse and was sentenced to three years in prison.
Ryan was released from prison in June 2018 and is back at Hampton City College, where he says he is learning the value of being a member of the student body.
He said he plans to become a veterinarian.
Ryan said he has learned from his experience and will not go back to Hampton Creek.
