Former Catholic high school teacher William Eick was arrested on charges of sexually abusing students over several years including having sexual intercourse with students.
He turned himself in to the Los Angeles Police Department on May 3, but later that day he posted bail. Police are concerned there could be more victims and are asking them to come forward.
Eick,whose full name is William Maclyn Murphy Eick, allegedly used his teaching position to engage in this criminal behavior at Bishop Alemany High School in Mission Hills. He worked at the high school between 2009 and 2016.
Victims or their families are asked to contact LAPD Detective Kittle, Mission Area Sex Crimes Unit at 818-838-9969.
It’s unclear how police first learned about this incident, however, we understand that victims will often feel afraid to report such a crime to a parent or school because they think no one is going to believe them.
It’s also important to note that when the Catholic church had problems with sexual abuse involving boys, it was determined they had prior knowledge of these actions and took steps to hide what happened. The situation with Bishop Alemany High School should be investigated to determine whether a similar situation existed. A full investigation into this situation will help prevent other similar crimes from happening to innocent children.
