Notre Dame Academy "no bill"

Worcester Voice

In reviewing documents from Worcester Superior Court in the case where Kallin Johnson is alleged to have sexually abused a female student at Notre Dame Academy in Worcester, it becomes apparent that Mr. Johnson at one point was a business partner with the wife of the attorney representing Notre Dame, Kevin Byrne.

The records also show an appalling lack of action on behalf of the district attorney, John Conte.

District Attorney Conte allowed Mr. Johnson, a music teacher at Notre Dame, to remain in the school after the allegation against him was supported by the Massachusetts Department of Social Services and his name was placed on their registry for sexual offenders. This information was provided by Attorney Wendy Murphy.
