Catholic School Teachers Accused Of Sexual Abuse


BALTIMORE -- Two Catholic school teachers have been accused of sexually abusing a male student at Our Lady of Pompei High School in Baltimore more than a decade ago.

A spokesman for the Archdiocese of Baltimore said teachers Thom Khul and Eric Price have denied the allegations. They were brought forward last month by the former student, who said he was abused over a two-year period in the early to mid-1990s.

Kuhl is now a deacon at Our Lady of Pompeii Church in Highlandtown and a religion teacher at Towson Catholic High School. Price is a teacher at Archbishop Borders School in Highlandtown.

Both have been suspended from their duties while the archdiocese investigates the claim. Neither man had been accused of sexual abuse before.
