A retired English teacher and chaplain at the elite Horace Mann High School in New York had admitted that he had sex with ‘maybe three’ students at the private all-boys institution.
In a phone interview with the New York Times, 88-year-old Tek Young Lin, of Santa Cruz, California, insisted that he did not coerce any students into having sexual relations.
‘Everything I did was in warmth and affection and not a power play,’ Lin said.
Back then, Lin said sexual boundaries were not as clearly defined as they are now, in the age of nearly daily revelations involving teachers, priests and other figures of authority molesting minors.
‘In those days, it was very spontaneous and casual, and it did not seem really wrong,’ he said.
This latest revelation comes just weeks after the New York Times Magazine published an explosive article that brought to light allegations of sexual abuse involving at least three now-deceased teachers and coaches at the elite school between 1978 and 1994.
Since the publication of the expose, some Horace Mann graduates have come forward with accusations against former teachers who are still alive, including Mr Lin, who was also a cross-country coach at the school.
Lin retired in 1986 and is unlikely to face legal action or lawsuits because of New York’s statutes of limitation.
