What a horrible, horrible thing to have happen.
Horrible events like this are just what the law was designed to correct.
Your daughter has been "assaulted" twice. First by the star basketball player. Then, she has been in effect "assaulted" the second time by the school officials. To make it even worse, these are the people who are supposed to be protecting and nurturing children like your daughter.
Your daughter had a right to be protected – and not assaulted – by the school officials. You need to speak with a zealous attorney who is willing to protect your daughter's rights and work for justice.
If you would like, I would be pleased to speak with you about this situation. 865-633-6633 . JOwnby@OwnbyLawFirm.com.
Oh wow...I'm very sorry to hear that. You have the right to choose any attorney you want for the case. However, should you so wish, you may call me at (321) 945-3353. Although I am a Florida attorney, I have a friend of mine who is a partner in a major law firm in Orlando, BUT who also has a license to practice in TN. He and his partners have a lot of experience in this type of case and he is designated by attorneys' community as a "Super Lawyer".
You may want to have at least a conference with him to determine the strength of your case. He will give you a free consultation.

First and foremost, the DA should prosecute those school officials who failed to report the event. it is a class A misdemeanor for a person who knows of suspected abuse and fails to report.
