According to NBC Los Angeles, a spokesperson for the LAUSD has admitted that they destroyed certain documents related the child abuse case at Miramonte school.
Sean Rossall of Cerrell Associates, the public relations representative handling media inquiries about the Miramonte child abuse scandal, says the documents were destroyed sometime in 2008.
In light of some documents being destroyed, Superior Court Judge John Wiley, Jr. issued a ruling that will open the door to unredacted information gathered by investigators.
