Idaho Football Players Accused Of Raping Teammate With Disabilities
A $10 million civil suit against Dietrich High School says administrators and coaches knew about the abuse.By Eugene Daniels | May 26, 2016
A high school in Dietrich, Idaho, is being sued for $10 million for allegedly allowing a mentally disabled football player to be abused and bullied for months. Three of his teammates have been charged with sexual assault.
The civil lawsuit alleges the teen "was taunted and called racist names by other members of the team which names included 'Kool-Aid' 'chicken eater' 'watermelon' and [the N-word]." The details of what happened are extremely disturbing.
The lawsuit says one of the accused attackers reached out as though asking for a hug after practice last October but instead restrained him and allowed him to be raped with a coat hanger.
