Jeffrey S. Barton, 55, formerly the head administrator of the prestigious Army and Navy Academy in Carlsbad, Calif., was arrested yesterday, Oct. 17, on charges of sexual molestation against former students at the school.
San Diego County’s website confirms there are 16 felony counts against Barton; 14 of them are for oral copulation with a minor and two counts of forcible sodomy on a minor. Ages of the victims have not been released.
Barton was an 18-year employee of the academy, from 1995 to 2013, before resigning in June following the first allegation.
The Army-Navy Academy is a college preparatory boarding school for boys in grades seven through high school with some 300 students.
Established over 100 years ago, the military school attracts students from across the United States and other countries around the world.
Police have reason to believe there are more victims and are urging anyone with information to call their office at 760-931-2276.
