Here’s another horror story of a brutal rape at public school.  This is why I choose to home school my daughter.  It’s a dangerous world and our kids need protection.  This public school was clearly negligent and should pay dearly for what happened to this young girl.

A West Virginia family’s 13-year-old daughter was allegedly gang raped after school at the Mount Hope Middle School back in September 2011. The brutal assault would not have happened had the staff been more cooperative and understanding and less negligent. The girl, identified as B.E., claims that the Fayette County school board, the state Department of Education and school officials did not provide enough supervision around the school.

The girl had to stay after school to collect uniforms for her school cheerleading squad from the coach, Linda Nevi, who took too long to gather the uniforms, which made the girl miss her school bus. After realizing that she had missed the bus, B.E. went to the school’s office and asked to use the school phone to call her parents and get a ride home. School office workers refused  to let her use the phone, so she went outside the gymnasium to borrow a friend’s cell phone. B.E. called her parents from the borrowed phone to tell them she would ride home with her friend’s parents when they came to pick him up after basketball practice. Hoping to wait in the office, the girl went back to the room to find it closed, and the staff gone.

After returning to the gymnasium to wait inside for her ride, Bo Morrison, the basketball coach, allegedly told the girl that she was not allowed to wait inside during practice. While sitting outside the gymnasium, the girl was confronted by several male Mount Hope High School student athletes; The student athletes forced her 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 the young girls while another female juvenile was looking on. When the assault ended, B.E. returned to the gymnasium with the female juvenile to wait for the friend she was originally going to ride home with and his parents.

The family has filed a lawsuit and seeks a court order that would force the school to impose policies to protect students and “compensatory and punitive damages for negligent supervision, negligence, willful, wanton and reckless conduct, intentional and reckless infliction of emotional distress, negligent infliction of emotional distress, and violation of Title IX.”

About mamaheartfilled

I am a mother of eight wonderfully challenging children and fourteen grandkids, of whom I am very proud. I am also a bi-vocational ordained evangelical minister, and a Christian Counselor. I received my B.S. degree in 2004, studying primarily in the areas of Psychology, with minors in Religion and English. I received my Masters Degree in 2009 in Psychological Counseling with an emphasis in Christian Counseling. I have endeavored to paraphrase the Bible, both Old and New Testaments. It is my hope that it will be of some use in the great commission of Christ. My ministry is primarily geared toward victims of sexual and domestic violence, including victims of childhood sexual abuse, whether currently or in the past. Since I have personally experienced the healing hand of God in overcoming many of the life issues that Christians may face, I feel qualified and compelled to discuss them in a truthful and open manner, as God’s word tells us that “We shall know the truth and the truth shall set us free.” God has brought me through such diverse tribulations as sexual, physical, and mental abuse, being a victim of a drunk driving accident, spousal pornography addiction, adultery, divorce, remarriage, a very brief, though unjust, incarceration, and having experienced multiple miscarriages and various other trials. I have been asked to leave two Southern Baptist Churches, due to my being a female, ordained as a minister, and fired from a SBC sponsored Christian School (mostly white) for speaking out against racial prejudice in the Family of God. Through God’s merciful forgiveness of my own sins and inadequacies and God’s grace given to me to forgive those who have been a stumbling block to me, I have overcome many of these adversities. God’s word tells us that “All things work together for good to those who love the Lord and are called according to the purposes of God." Since I have this hope, I believe that God has blessed me with the ability to confront and relate these issues to the Christian community around the world. I hope to be able to use my personal experiences as a ministry of God’s grace and in the comforting of the people of God with the truth of God's mercy. I claim II Corinthians 1: 3 & 4 as my calling, which states: “Blessed be God, the Origin of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Origin of mercies, and the God of comfort; who comforts us in all our troubles, that we may be able to comfort those who are in trouble, by the comfort we ourselves have been given by God.” As I have received the gift of God’s healing, I hope to be able to bring the peace beyond understanding to others with the message of God’s mercy and grace. My love for the Sovereign Lord of my life, Jesus Christ, along with my passion for writing has drawn me to explore these commonly experienced crisis issues from the perspective of my own experience in the hope that I may bring an empathetic and compassionate insight to God’s people. I am now a published author and have several books in publication, including my autobiography, "A Little Redneck Theology." The views expressed in my writings are strictly my own insights, acquired from personal experience and diligent study of the related topics and God’s word concerning them. Though I am an ordained minister, my views should not be considered authoritative. I believe that the Christian community’s ultimate authority is the guidance of the human heart by the Holy Spirit and the Word of God.
