New Federal Claim Filed Against Charter Schools USA at Keys Gate for Female Student Raped by High School Football Players

WHAT: JEFF HERMAN (www.hermanlaw.com), a nationally-recognized attorney for victims of sexual abuse, announces the filing of a lawsuit against CHARTER SCHOOLS USA for the sexual assault of a 16-year-old girl by two male student football players during school hours at KEYS GATE CHARTER HIGH SCHOOL.

Original state case was dismissed and federal case filed adding Title 9 claim, which alleges:

  • During the 2012-2013 school year, T.F. and R.G., both student football players at KEYS GATE HIGH SCHOOL, began to continually sexually harass JANE.
  • The sexual harassment perpetrated by T.F. and R.G. included, but was not limited to: telling JANE they would like to have vaginal and oral intercourse with JANE, rubbing against JANE’S breast and touching JANE’S buttocks in the hallway.
  • MOTHER DOE reported the sexual harassment to the guidance counselor and Principal yet R.G. and T.F. continued to have unfettered access to JANE at KEYS GATE CHARTER HIGH SCHOOL.
  •  On or about April 15, 2014, JANE was using the restroom at KEYS GATE CHARTER HIGH SCHOOL in between her classes.  R.G. entered the restroom and opened JANE’S stall door, grabbed her by the arm and demanded sex.  R.G. pulled JANE out of the bathroom and into the hallway.  T.F. met R.G. and JANE in the hallway.
  • T.F. told R.G. that he was going to retrieve the keys to CHARTER SCHOOL Dean of Students Jamaal Fairley’s office from Jamaal Fairley himself. While he was waiting for T.F. to return, R.G. took JANE to the boys’ locker room, where he pulled out his penis and forced it into JANE’S mouth.
  • T.F. returned with the keys to Jamaal Fairley’s office and the two boys brought JANE to the office, where the boys took turns receiving oral sex. R.G. and T.F. attempted to choke JANE by pushing their penises as far into her mouth as possible. R.G. and T.F. each ejaculated into JANE’S mouth.
  • R.G. and T.F. threatened JANE not to tell anyone about the incident or they would sexually assault her again.

JANE DOE NO. 50. v. CHARTER SCHOOLS USA was filed yesterday in The US District Court for the Southern District of Florida.

Jeff Herman, the victim’s attorney, said: “A school must protect students from sexual assault on campus.”
