BRENTWOOD — Former Phillips Exeter Academy admissions officer pleaded not guilty to sexual abuse charges and waived his arraignment.
Arthur Peekel, 74, of Illinois, turned himself in after alleged charges of him sexually abusing a young male in the fall of 1973 went public.
When school officials became aware of the incident they allowed Peekel to resign without prejudice and he continued his education career in Illinois. He was named Illinois teacher of the year in 1991.
Several other allegations of abuse by faculty at Phillips Exeter Academy have surfaced, but Peekel is the first to face criminal charges.
