The Lakewood School District has confirmed they are conducting an investigation following accusations that assistant principal, Denise “Lynette” Stormer, engaged in sexual misconduct with multiple female students for years.
Stormer is accused of enticement of a minor after she allegedly drove multiple female students on a school outing, while allowing them to have sexual relations in the back of her car. After she was confronted by Lakewood police, Stormer resigned her position at the start of the school year.
In a statement, District superintendent Dr. Brad Murray said, “We are aware of the allegations that exist against former assistant principal Lynn Stormer. We are looking into the situation and are conducting an investigation.”
Stormer’s attorney, Michael Reardon, provided the following statement on behalf of the former Assistant Principal:
“Ms. Stormer has done nothing wrong, and she will vigorously fight any attempt to tarnish her good name, reputation, or service to the district. We look forward to cooperation with the investigators so that all charges can be proven false.”
The Lakewood Police Department confirmed the matter is under investigation, and that they are in close contact with the Lakewood School District and are fully supportive of them and of their handling of the matter.
