Kent man charged with sexual abuse
A Kent man is accused of sexually abusing two girls at a Long Island music school where he taught.
Nassau County police say the alleged abuse occurred "on numerous occasions" during private lessons at the Burt School of Music in Hicksville, N.Y. between January 2012 and March 2015.
The girls' instructor, 62-year-old Kenton Burt of Kent, was arrested March 26, 2015 at the school.
He faces two counts of first-degree sexual abuse and was set to be arraigned the next day in Hempstead. It wasn't immediately clear if he had a lawyer.
An investigation is underway.
