WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - An arbitrator has found that a Kansas military school failed to supervise its cadets and intentionally inflicted emotional distress in 2014 on a bullied 11-year-old student who had been tied together with his harasser in public as punishment.

The boy was later allegedly raped and sodomized by his harasser in a dorm room.

A $369,175 arbitration award last month against St. John's Military School and its endowment fund was made public Monday when the family's attorney filed a procedural motion in the case seeking a court order.

The Salina school and its attorneys did not immediately respond to emails seeking comment.

The arbitrator also found St. Johns was suffering from decreasing enrollment and did little review of applicants to determine their own safety or the safety of other students.
