Sexual assault case leads to lawsuit against charter school
I'm sure it's true, because children never lie about sexual assault:



By Lou Grieco | Friday, January 15, 2010, 05:00 PM

DAYTON The family of a former student has filed a lawsuit against the Summit Academy, claiming another student raped and sexually abused the boy at the school.

The lawsuit was filed Thursday, Jan. 14 in Montgomery County Common Pleas Court. A similar lawsuit was filed by the family in January 2009, but withdrawn in November. The new lawsuit names the alleged perpetrator and his parents as defendants.

Neither Kathleen Mioni, state superintendent for Summit Academy schools, nor P.J. Conboy II, attorney for the plaintiffs, returned phone calls on Friday, Jan. 15.

The victim, who now lives in Toledo with his mother, was 10 at the time a rape was reported at the charter school, 1407 E. Third St., in January 2008, according to a police report. The other boy was arrested, according to police records.

The lawsuit complaint states that the victim was raped and sexually abused on Jan. 15, 2008 and that the perpetrator had been involved in allegations of sexual abuse before.

The complaint also says that the victim had been raped and sexually assaulted by the same student on numerous other occasions but Summit Academy did nothing to prevent such actions.

2. No, never.
We're told never to be alone with a student. If a student comes in after school for tutoring, we're supposed to prop our door open. This is to protect us against such allegations.

7. Absolutely. I always had the door open when there was only one student.
Of course that is no guarantee at all some shitbag lawyer can't create a phony case about something supposedly happening in another part of the school.

So do most DUers.

6. I doubt it. They most likely have insurance that pays out
in cases like this one.

5. So the other kid was the same age?
At least the paper didn't name staff members, unlike unscrupulous media in other parts of the country.
