A schoolgirl was brutally gang raped after rigid school rules meant she was kept late and missed her bus home, it has been reported.
The 13-year-old's parents are suing Mount Hope Middle School in West Virginia, claiming the horrendous sexual assault would not have happened were it not for the actions of staff at the school.
The girl was allegedly set upon by a group of athletes at the school while waiting outside for a ride home.
She had missed her bus after being made to collect uniforms for the cheerleading squad by Linda Nevi, the coach.
When the girl, who was the middle school's cheerleading captain, then went to the school's office to ask to call home, she was told she could not do so and had to use a friend's cell phone instead, the case alleges.
She then allegedly went back to the school office to wait there but it was locked and staff had gone home.
She also is said to have tried to wait inside the gymnasium but was then told by the basketball coach, Bo Morrison, that she could not wait inside while practice was going on.
'While sitting outside the gymnasium, Plaintiff B.E. was confronted by various male Mount Hope High School student athletes,' the lawsuit alleges.
'The student athletes forced Plaintiff B.E. to a room commonly used by students at Mount Hope High School to engage in sexual acts.
'In this room, the student athletes raped and physically and sexually assaulted Plaintiff B.E. while another female juvenile was present.
The boys are said to have been older, aged between 16 and 17.

False accusations cost an associate his family, his job, and career. The accuser recanted just prior to the trial, but the damage was done. In these cases you are guilty until proven innocent.
All it takes is a lie from the other party.
I am only playing devils advocate here, but consider it carefully before you pull out the tar and feathers.
....scraped and scarred, my gluteous maximus!
I hope her parents sue that school district and the officials involved into oblivion!
Condom trace evidence is well known in law enforcement. It would be standard procedure to check for the various types of trace evidence that a condom always leaves.
Besides, there’s all sorts of other DNA transfers that can occur during a sexual assault, and the likelyhood of these transfers is much greater with a gang.
Had she been assaulted using condoms, the police would be able to tell and prove it.
They would possibly even be able to prove the brand of condom.
In the LAX case, the accuser changed her story to add condoms when the DNA evidence didn’t show up, but that story didn’t work, either.
Use of a condom is obvious during a sexual assault exam and tests.
This is true..at least where I teach and coach. This seems to be a mixed level school. Mine is a middle school. I am to stay and watch any of my female athletes until they are in the car or bus home. If their parents don’t come for an hour it doesn’t matter. I stand at the front of the school til they arrive. High school coaches in the same district are not required to watch the athletes beyond the time they leave the locker rooms to head home. Many drive so maybe that is the distinction. If this happened in my building we’d be liable.... big time. Whether she was actually raped or not...we should have been there.
Could we have a trial and some evidence first before we shoot them?
“Namely, he (prosecutor) says that when he interviewed the young woman in January 2011, she recanted her allegations of being abducted and vaginally raped, claiming only that she was pressured into oral sex.”
Well that explains it then. No sex was involved as far as the prosecutor admits to knowing.
Isn’t humanism great?
They have FOUR (4) police officers there. Hospitals ~ go to Beckley WV, or drive off somewhere else also some distance away.
You actually could have a situation where a town that has maybe one rape a year was not prepared to peform an examination ~ or to do it correctly.
This is not a heavily urbanized area.
It's gotta' be tough being a little girl around hard-core Democrats these days.
Same here, Judith Anne. From my experience a child would never have been left alone like that. Not saying it didn’t happen exactly that way, but it’s way outside of anything I have ever experienced.
Fayette County WV has fully certified SANE personnel available as far as I know.
And is that who examined the little girl?
Sounds like they'd needed a dental tech.
First sue the dog out of the school and the principal.
Next those young boys, watch your backs when you turn 18.
Payback is a bitch. They will be adults then.
“Sick! Sick! Sick! This young girl will scarred for life! These punks deserve the electric chair!”
Take it easy, it’s a public school...what do you expect?
What kind of school is it where the athletes feel free to rape the cheerleaders?
Can’t get certified without some experience. Gotta intern, I believe.
Are you going to keep reaching every time I answer?
Yes, you are.
Well, I don’t think I want to play any more.
If the prosecutor could have brought charges he would have.
NOTE: Several years ago a bunch of highschool athletes decided to beat up one of my kids ~ I destroyed their football and wrestling teams. Stuff happens, but here the county prosecutor doesn't care whether you are an athlete or a computer geek ~ he has cells to fill in the county jail.
Ok, trial, then hanging. I am ok with that. Let the guilty be punished.
