Ex-worker at Va. boarding school charged

FREDERICKSBURG, Va. (AP) — A former employee at a boarding school in Caroline County has been charged with 13 counts of child endangerment.

The Free Lance-Star (http://bit.ly/1nERtR6 ) reports that 44-year-old Liam Brendan Gilligan of Fredericksburg has been accused of the felony charges stemming from an incident in November 2013.

Caroline County Sheriff Tony Lippa says 13 male students of Abundant Life Academy near Sparta were forced to do drills in a swamp in 35-degree weather, then made to wash off in a lake. Many became ill as a result.

Gilligan had been the program director at the school.
