October 8, 2019

LAWRENCE TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) — A 23-year-old teacher at The Lawrenceville School is accused of inappropriately touching two teenage boys while they slept.

Authorities have charged Dominic Brown with aggravated criminal sexual contact and child endangerment.

Authorities allege Brown entered the boys’ dorm rooms early Saturday and touched them. The teens alerted public safety.

Brown, who taught history and coached water polo, is held in the Mercer County jail pending a detention hearing. It could not be determined if he has hired a lawyer.

Lawrenceville was founded in 1810 and is one of the oldest prep schools in the United States. Its alumni include musicians Huey Lewis and Dierks Bentley, publisher Malcolm Forbes and Disney executive Michael Eisner.
