A 15-year-old girl was sexually abused by her homeschool teacher, Harold L. Stone.

Stone, a prominent entrepreneur and former university professor, began sexually assaulting the girl in his home in August or September 2014 at the same time as he began homeschooling her. Stone made the girl “take home pregnancy tests and threatened to make her have an abortion if she conceived a child.” He also threatened to kill her parents if she told anyone about the abuse.

The girl reported the abuse to authorities in May 2015 and Stone was arrested shortly thereafter. He was found guilty of sexual assault and child abuse.
