Girl allegedly rape after being used as "bait"

The family of a special needs student at a school in Madison County, Alabama is suing over an incident that happened nearly five years ago, but is still affecting the young woman, devastating her life. The girl, 14-years-old at the time, was allegedly used as 'bait' to catch an accused sexual predator, who was also a student at the school.

Teen used as bait in rape case: 'I was set up'

A legal brief in the case says a teacher's aide encouraged the girl to go with the boy into the bathroom, so teachers could catch him in the act. Only no teachers came to the rescue, and the girl was allegedly raped. The teacher's aide has since been forced to resign, but there have been no repercussions for the school administrators who allegedly knew about the plan or for the alleged rapist, beyond a few days suspension. CNN's Victor Blackwell speaks to the alleged rape victim who says she feels like she was set up by her teachers.

    Why haven't the Principal and the knowledgeable teachers been taken down the local pen for a day or two of fun and activities?

      Sounds reasonable to me. How can you justify using a child as 'bait' for anything? Did they even ask her parents? I would like to think they would have declined. So how do you justify setting up any minor as bait for a crime like this? If you could absolutely on your life guarantee my child's safety, I would still tell you to go play in traffic until you came up with a better idea.
