Report: School Punishes 15-Year-Old Girl For Reporting Sexual Assult In School Toilet
This is another case where a teen girl was allegedly sexually assaulted in the restroom at her high school by a male student. This seems to be becoming a common theme which I assume has been caused by dangerous gender-neutral restrooms where no one questions who goes where... but I digress.
In this case, the reported victim was punished by the school following the report. Her mom told Vice that the school chose to punish her daughter and claim it was false reporting even after the male student admitted to attacking the girl.
Report by Vice:
The student, who is not named in the report by WBTV, told the outlet that she was routinely harassed by a male student at Hawthorne Academy of Health Sciences in Charlotte, North Carolina. One day, she said, “He would, like, come into the bathroom and he would push me into the stall.”
“He put his hands in my pants and then he was, like, touching my breasts,” continued the student, who is 15.
After she reported the classmate to the school, officials contacted local police, according to WBTV. The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department ended up pressing charges against a juvenile for sexual battery in connection to the report, a police spokesperson told the outlet.
But school administrators suspended the student for what they said was a filing a false report, WBTV reported.
“The child who did this to my daughter admitted to the police that he, in fact, did sexually assault her in a bathroom at the school,” the student’s mother told the outlet. “The school did their investigation, gave me a phone call and said, ‘Hey, look, unfortunately it looks like there’s no evidence that what your daughter’s saying took place did. We’re gonna have to give her a day of suspension.’”
The mother said she asked Hawthorne Academy’s principal, “If the police are telling me that he did do these things, he admitted to them, and that I have the right to press charges, you’re telling me this didn’t happen?”
Watch as the WBTV reporter desperately tried to get answers from school board officials. They avoid him like the plague and run for every question about the case.

Nick Ochsner explains in the video that he has also emailed the school board for answers to no avail. I can't imagine they could possibly explain away punishing the victim of sexual assault with any real justification but their silence on the matter speaks volumes. What do you think?
