A jury may hear a lawsuit filed by an Alabama teenager allegedly used as “rape bait” by a teacher, according to the Huffington Post. The student, a 14-year-old girl from Toney, Alabama, was a special needs student at Sparkman Middle School at the time of the incident. The girl allegedly told a teacher that a 16-year-old male student with a history of sexual harassment and violent behavior had made sexual advances toward her; the teacher then requested counsel from a vice principal, but did not receive any advice. The teacher planned an attempt to catch the boy in the act, using the girl as “bait,” and resulting in rape of the girl. The accused was never charged, and the educators never penalized. The girl and her family now hope to speak in front of a jury in civil court.
