Shocking allegations from an elementary in school student who says another student bullied and sexually assaulted him. This took place in Maryland. The boy’s parents say the school did nothing. A Prince George’s County family has filed a $2 million lawsuit against the Board of Education and a principal after their fifth-grade son was, they say, sexually abused by another boy in his class.
“It’s ugly. It’s sad and ugly. It happened a lot,” said Sharon Krevor-Weisbaum, attorney.
Court papers say the predator was bullying the victim — who is called JD in the documents – by making sexually explicit comments, exposing his genitals, and placing JD’s hand on the student’s genitals several times a day. The documents say the predator also sent sexually explicit texts and voice messages to JD’s phone and forced him to perform sexual acts in the school bathroom and classroom library.
The lawsuit claims that administrators and teachers knew about the abuse going on over an 18-month period and that nothing was done about it. In fact, the two boys were placed in the same fifth-grade class last year.
“I don’t really understand why, it baffles my mind. But they just ignored the parents completely,” said Krevor-Weisbaum.
This is just crazy.
