WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A Kansas military school says it has suspended an 18-year-old cadet leader who was arrested last week on allegations of sexual battery against a younger student at its Salina campus.

St. John's Military School said Tuesday that the cadet's leadership responsibilities were taken away and he was reassigned to another company while arrangements were being made to send him home to Virginia. The Associated Press is not identifying the suspect, who was arrested Friday, because formal charges have not been filed.

President Andy England says the school immediately started an investigation and, based on its findings, notified police and the state's child welfare agency.

The incident comes as St. John's fights a lawsuit filed by 11 ex-cadets alleging a culture of abuse existed at the school.
