More allegations of abuse and misconduct have surfaced against T.M. Landry College Prep in Breaux Bridge.

According to The Advocate, since December 3, 2018, the Breaux Bridge Police Department has received 10 new complaints against the school.

Breaux Bridge Police Chief Rollie Cantu did not describe the allegations; however, a lawyer representing the families bringing forward these new claims tells the paper that the complaints concern instances of “physical contact” by the Landrys on students while attending the school.

Previously closed cases are now also being reinvestigated. Read more from The Advocate here.

These allegations come following a New York Times article that levied similar claims against the school along with allegations falsifying transcripts and student accomplishments to make students more appealing to Ivy League schools.

KATC has reached out daily to the school for a response following the NYT article publication. We have not heard back.
