Children were frequently assaulted and raped as evidenced by the 2005 sentencing of Arthur Plint, a former dorm supervisor at a residential school, who was convicted of 16 counts of indecent assault.

As result of these actions that Arthur Plint committed, many of his victims have committed suicide or died of alcohol abuse, whereas others have assaulted their own wives and children. One man admitted that he had beat his wife and children for years before facing his problems and going into counseling and facing the sexual assault. Another man admitted that he beat his wife and sent her to the hospital for three months.
