Maryland Teacher Accused of Sex Abuse of Student
accused of sexually abusing a student in the 1980s.
She has not been charged in the incidents, according to online court records.Although Murtha was fired from her teaching position, it's not known what happens next.
The allegations were forwarded to the Baltimore city and county police departments, archdiocesan spokesman Sean Caine said.
"We investigated it, and the suspect was not charged, based on the victim's wishes," said a Baltimore County police spokesman, Lt. Robert McCullough.[…]
The allegations date to when Murtha taught at the Archbishop Keough High School, an all-girls Catholic school, which she joined in 1977.
The school merged with Seton High School in 1987 to become Seton Keough, and Murtha remained at the school until 1992.
She moved to what was then the College of Notre Dame as associate dean for student life before returning to Seton Keough, first as a substitute teacher and then, beginning in 2011, as a full-time religion teacher and member of the school's Campus Ministry Team.
