Three weeks after a Montclair boarding school was shut down by police amid allegations of abusive punishment, its owners were cited Friday by the state for operating without a license. Officials from the state's Community Care Licensing Division said that Otis and Doris McIntyre ran the Ministerial Christian Academy as a group home without obtaining proper approval. The citation does not carry a penalty but the McIntyres could be fined $200 a day if they reopen the facility without approval.

A Pomona boarding school that had been raided by the police amid allegations of child abuse and fraud was under investigation by the state for operating without a license, authorities said Thursday. Montclair police removed 26 students from the Ministerial Christian Academy last week after former students and a former employee alleged that children were beaten, handcuffed to beds, locked into bathrooms and forced to lug large rocks across a field in 90-degree weather as punishment.

Police in Montclair removed more than two dozen youths from a private military-style boarding school Tuesday, after a former employee and several former residents accused operators of administering abusive punishment. In an early morning raid, 26 youths were taken from an apartment complex used as a residence by the Ministerial Christian Academy. Investigators with search warrants confiscated handcuffs, shackles, computers, financial records and other documents, police said.
