Re: “Sexually assaulted girl awarded $754,000″ (TNT, 7-12).
Reading the repugnant remarks made by Clover Park School District’s attorney regarding the developmentally disabled girl, I was compelled to write.
The girl was awarded $754,000 for the sexual assault she endured at Lochburn Middle School. Attorney William Coats argued that the girl only deserved $50,000 because it was unlikely she would suffer as much as someone with normal cognitive abilities.
Really? This is how the district views the most vulnerable children? Disgusting.
Kudos to the jury. I hope the girl and her family can find some peace with this award.
