BEMUS POINT – A former teacher at Maple Grove High School is accused of sexually abusing a student.
Teacher Lori Conti is accused of abusing a student at Maple Grove High School between 1994 and 1996.
Conti, along with the Bemus Point Central School District and the School Board, were named in a civil suit filed in Chautauqua County Supreme Court last week.
The victim is represented by Buffalo attorney Jerry Kristal.
Under the state’s Child Victims Act, complainants are able to sue their alleged abusers even if the criminal statute of limitations has expired.
