A mentally-challenged 15-year-old girl in New York was brutally gang-raped by two boys in her classroom with her teacher standing only a few feet away.
According to reports the special needs student was allegedly sexually assaulted for 10 minutes as another student “hit her on the head whenever she tried to escape.”
The girl’s mother filed a lawsuit, alleging that the teacher ignored the assault even as one student danced on the desk while another attempted to sexually assault the girl.
Though the girl told a school social worker the next day, school officials failed to report the crime.
The teen, identified only by the initials K.J., was the only girl in her class, among 13 boys.
The alleged attackers were residents of a home for juvenile delinquents and the girl’s mother said her daughter was bullied for months.
The school’s executive director said an internal investigation was conducted as soon as they heard of the abuse and fired the teacher.
