Direct from CNN. Read the whole story.

Lawsuit alleges Missouri school expelled girl for making rape claim - CNN.com

"A rape examination proved that the girl was telling the truth, and the male student pleaded guilty to charges related to the attack, the suit alleges.

"The suit alleges that school officials made the girl write an apology letter and deliver it to the boy -- without consulting with the girl's mother.
She was then expelled for the rest of the school year and reported to juvenile authorities for allegedly filing a false crime report.

"She was allowed to come back to school the next year and her mother urged school officials to protect her from the male student. School officials denied the request, the suit alleges.

"Though she tried to avoid the boy, she was harassed again. She did not report this because she was scared that school officials would not believe her.

"In February 2010, the same boy grabbed her, dragged her to the back of the school library and raped her again, the suit alleges.

"School officials approached (the girl's) claims with the same skepticism as the year before, even going so far as to state that they had 'already been through this,' " the suit states.

"The girl's mother took her to a child advocacy center that confirmed that a sexual assault occurred and DNA evidence found in the girl matched the male student, the suit alleges."


Thoughts from any locals? Thoughts in general? Is CNN misreporting/leaving out details, or this as cut and dry, disgusting, and as ed up as it looks?

I'll be curious to see how this plays out in court and if any other facts come out of this story, but if it turns out to be factual I'm not the least surprised. Just the latest in a string of attacks against women in this country. Particularly this part of the country sadly.
