In an old [now deleted] comment from the Glen Arbor Sun's website, we noticed a reference to girls being molested as well as boys. According to the person who commented, some female members from a Hubbard Woods alumni group often talked about inappropriate experiences with Bricker. Perhaps this woman is one of them.
Thanks to one of our readers for posting the link to the article in the comments of a previous post on this blog. Here's the LINK.
Here's an excerpt from the Tribune article:
The woman told authorities that Bricker would encourage the girls to sit on his lap during indoor recess. She said that on at least one occasion, Bricker put his hand inside her underwear and "rubbed her buttocks," according to the police report.
Winnetka police Chief Patrick Kreis said this week that during the course of a recent investigation into the woman's claim, officials with the Cook County state's attorney office's sex crimes unit determined that charges could not be pursued because the state's statute of limitations had expired.
"We have closed this case in Winnetka, but we have been communicating with the authorities in Wyoming on multiple occasions and will continue to do so as warranted," Kreis said.
