My granddaughter who is a junior in High school was molested by a classmate who went to her church. He has a rap sheet for drug dealing also and yet the school and the police won't do anything about it. He also molested his little sister--comes from a broken home, and deals drugs apparently on school grounds. Can this young man beheld accountable in some way? My granddaughter tried to commit suicide and is under medical and psychological care, and has PTSD. Also we just heard that he got another classmate pregnant. I moved here from Wisconsin a couple of years ago when I retired from teaching, and I am not familiar with Illinois laws, and my daughter is trying to find out more about her options. I just now discovered this site and would like to see if we can bring some sort of justice, and also monitor the high school that was touted to be one of the best in the area, tho they are not cooperating very well in this instance. They even refused to let her change classes as the "Perp" is in two of her classes, and she gets physically ill seeing him. x
