JACKSON TOWNSHIP, OH – A family of a girl has filed a federal lawsuit against their school district after their kindergartner was sexually assaulted on a school bus.

According to the attorney representing the family, the incident happened in 2016 inside a Jackson Local School District bus.

“This fifth-grade student had previous serious issues on the bus. He was accused of throwing a lit match on the bus,” said Laura Mills, the family’s attorney.

“So he was disciplined. He was suspended from the bus for a week,” Mills added. “He was supposed to be placed in the front right seat alone.”

But instead, the 11-year-old boy sat down beside a 5-year-old girl who was sitting directly behind the school bus driver.

“The driver is unable to see the seat right behind him,” said Mills. “So then over a period of a couple weeks the kindergartner is subjected to sexual assaults. It is horrific. It is one of the most horrifying cases I have ever handled.”

Surveillance footage from inside the bus captured the sexual assaults and police charged the boy with gross sexual imposition. The boy and his family have since moved out of the district.

The superintendent for Jackson Schools would not discuss the case because of the pending lawsuit but said student safety is the district’s top priority.

“The family wants to make sure their daughter gets any helps she needs,” Mills said. “And they also want to make sure something like this doesn’t happen again.”

So what do you think?
