According to the lawsuit, filed by Salvatore Prescott & Porter, the victim, identified as Jane Doe, was 15 years old and a freshman at the school when it happened. Defendants in the lawsuit include Warren Consolidated Schools, the assistant principal at Cousino, superintendent and the executive director, student and family liaison for Warren Consolidated Schools.
The lawsuit alleges that the relationship between Jane Doe, and the alleged suspect, identified as John Roe, began toward the beginning of her freshman year.
According to the suit, on May 15, 2015, John Roe, who was 18 at the time, approached Jane Doe and asked if she wanted to go to his car. The lawsuit states that she agreed, and when they got to the car, they went into the backseat where he locked the doors.
While in the backseat, the lawsuit says he unbuckled his pants, pushed them away and asked for oral sex.
“Jane Doe started to comply with John Roe’s demand, but then told him it was ‘gross’ and that she wanted to stop,” the lawsuit says. “John Roe said, ‘oh well,’ and then he forcibly pushed Jane Doe’s head down toward his lap and forced her mouth onto his penis.”
Two days later, the lawsuit alleges that the school questioned Jane about the incident. When she told officials what happened, the lawsuit says the assistant principal “responded by criticizing Jane Doe’s clothing, intimating that Jane Doe invited unwanted sexual attention because of the way she was dressed.”
