Two victims of sexual abuse at the elite Rhode Island boarding school St. George's have filed complaints with state licensing officials about the school's former psychologist.

They tell The Associated Press that Peter Kosseff didn't do enough to address and prevent abuse during his 35 years at the school, and they want his license revoked.

Kosseff still practices in offices in South Kingstown and Newport. He didn't respond to multiple requests for comment.

The women say the first complaint was filed in December and the other soon after. A Department of Health spokesman says such complaints are confidential.
