MORRISTOWN - Additional claims of sex abuse and cover-up are being leveled at a prominent Catholic prep school in Morristown.

Two alleged victims have added their claims to a previous complaint by two other men filed against the Delbarton School and two of its priests in March.

One of the alleged victims, Steve Badt, came forward, saying he was abused during the seventh and eighth grade after class.

The attorney for Badt says that there are dozens of more victims who were abused at the school.

The original complaint identified Rev. Justin Capato and Rev. Luke Travers as priests responsible for the abuse. The new allegations identify two additional clergy members, Rev. Timothy Brennan and Rev. Benedict Worry.
