Rev. Robert H. Thompson has been placed on administrative leave from Phillips Exeter Academy and prohibited from talking to the media following disclosure in July on a 2015 sexual assault case.

This information was given to the Boston Globe by Nadine Thompson, the reverend's wife and a previous employee of the school.

This comes after a sexual assault case where Thompson allegedly made a deal with the victim that they would receive weekly bread deliveries from the student athlete who reportedly groped her in the church basement.
