    OMG! Give us a break from this stupidity. Do you really believe this boy didn’t know what was happening? If you do, I think you need psych help. Ok maybe she was in a higher position big deal. It’s not molestation period. I think it’s just an opportunity for someone to sue the school . I think all these cases are. If you don’t want any of this going on then you need to hire older people to work in positions where high schoolers are present. Save time and room at the jails for real perverts and molestors.

      If I read the story correctly this boy was in alternative school. He may have had a disability. And before you open your big mouth I will tell you I have a son who is disabled. And had an incident involving a teacher. Not molested but attacked. And another thing having sex with someone that young is illegal. So yes it is molestation
