BRIDEPORT -- Harding High School students forced two severely mentally disabled students into a possible sexually inappropriate action, the lawyer for one of the disabled students charged Thursday.
On Wednesday, Patrick Nolan, 19, was charged with first-degree sexual assault, risk of injury to a child and third-degree abuse after police said he sexually assaulted a mentally disabled teenage boy in a bathroom at Harding on the second day of school last year. Police said a group of non-disabled students cheered as they watched, and one of them recorded the incident on his phone to show around school.
Nolan was released to the custody of his parents following a brief court appearance on Wednesday, and the case was continued to July 15.
This boy (Nolan) is profoundly retarded, and this is lost on the depiction of the situation," said his lawyer, Mark Phillips. "Able-minded students got these two special-education students into the bathroom and then egged them on into a situation and filmed it. They are the criminals."
The other students involved have not been identified, and no one other than Nolan has been arrested in the incident. School officials said they didn't know which students were involved so they didn't take any action during the school year.

We now have an entire generation of psychopaths.
Beam me the eff up, please, dear God please.
This ping list is for the other articles of interest to homeschoolers about education and public school. This can occasionally be a fairly high volume list. Articles pinged to the Another Reason to Homeschool List will be given the keyword of ARTH. (If I remember. If I forget, please feel free to add it yourself)
The main Homeschool Ping List handles the homeschool-specific articles. I hold both the Homeschool Ping List and the Another Reason to Homeschool Ping list. Please freepmail me to let me know if you would like to be added to or removed from either list, or both.
My bet? ......One or more of the students doing the egging was the child of one of the principals or favored teachers in the school.
What a sick bunch of sociopaths. The so-called “non-disabled” students responsible should be charged with the crime.
this is what they were headed towards by taking morality out of schools
