Phillips Exeter Academy Says 2nd Teacher Fired Over Student Sex



An elite New Hampshire prep school says a second teacher has been fired after admitting having sexual encounters with a student more than two decades ago.

Phillips Exeter Academy said Wednesday in letters to staff, faculty, students, parents and alumni Steve Lewis has been fired and is barred from campus and all school events.

Lewis can't be reached for comment. There's no telephone number listed in his name.

The school says police have said there are no investigations involving current faculty members. The police chief can't be reached for comment.

Another teacher was forced to resign in 2011 and was stripped of his emeritus status after admitting to two past instances of sexual misconduct with students.
