Several high school girls — dubbed “mean girls” — claimed a male student sexually assaulted them because they “just don’t like him.” Now the school district and district attorney are facing heat over the fact that neither punished the young women at all.

Now the boy’s parents, Michael J. and Alicia Flood, are suing the parents of the five girls and the Seneca Valley School District in Pennsylvania over their son’s treatment. They say in their 26-page lawsuit their son “was forced to endure multiple court appearances, detention in a juvenile facility, detention at home, the loss of his liberty, and other damages until several of the girls reluctantly admitted that their accusations were false.”

Their son is now being homeschooled due to the bullying he received, including signs taped to his back without his knowledge that said “predator,” according to the lawsuit which was filed last week.

“[The boy] was basically being tortured in school by other students and investigators, but the administration was only focused on protecting the girls who were lying,” the Floods’ attorney, Craig Fishman, told Penn Live. “Once the allegations were proven false, they didn’t really care one bit about [the male student] and there has been absolutely no repercussions against the girls.”

One of the girls decided to accuse the boy of sexually assaulting her while he worked as a lifeguard in July 2017 because, according to a taped interview obtained by Fishman: “I just don’t like him.” She has been identified only as “K.S.” in the lawsuit.

The lawsuit states the girl told classmates in October 2017 “she would do anything to get [the boy] expelled” so she accused him of sexually assaulting her at the pool. A friend of K.S. who worked at the pool, Megan Villegas, claimed she was present during the assault. Villegas is the only named defendant and is a graduate of Seneca Valley High School, where the other students attend.

It worked, as the boy was charged with indecent assault and two counts of harassment based on the girl’s word. The boy and his parents agreed to a consent decree that allowed him to avoid admitting guilt and required him to stay out of trouble for six months while on probation.

Several months later, in March 2018, a friend of the first accuser, identified only as C.S., claimed the boy entered her house without her permission and sexually assaulted her. Two more friends, identified as E.S. and H.R., backed up her claim. In April, the accused student was charged with another indecent assault, criminal trespass, and simple assault.

He was expelled and arrested and identified as a threat to his community. He spent nine days in a juvenile detention center and then placed on house arrest.

“After 28 days, [the boy] was only allowed out of his home to mow his lawn,” the lawsuit states.

In May, three of the girls admitted they lied, but it took until August 30 for Butler County District Attorney Richard Goldinger to dismiss the second accusation, and until September 10 to close the charges related to the first accusation.

“The Butler County District Attorney’s office promised to file a petition to expunge the record of [the male student] in September, but has not yet done so, providing further evidence of gender-based discrimination,” the lawsuit says. “The (district attorney) has refused to file criminal charges against K.S., Villegas, C.S., E.S. and H.R. due to gender-based discrimination.”

The school has also not punished the students who made the false accusation, according to the lawsuit.

“[The accused student] has had psychological trauma because of all this. He’s had to see a psychologist to deal with the physical symptoms which are the direct result of being accused of something when he did not do anything wrong,” Fishman, the family attorney, said.

The boy’s parents are seeking unspecified damages from the parents of the girls, the school district, and Goldinger’s office.

The school district remains steadfast in its treatment of the boy, claiming the lawsuit was filed “without merit.”

“We have followed all applicable laws, and we will vigorously defend ourselves throughout the process,” a district spokesman said in a statement released Monday.

“The number-one priority of the Seneca Valley School District is the safety and well-being of our students, staff, parents, and volunteers who enter our buildings. We have policies and procedures in place to protect individuals, and we communicate to all employees on these policies and work hard every day to provide a safe and caring learning environment for all.”

    Looks like this kid was guilty just from the “mean girls accusations who just didn’t like him”.
    What happened to “innocent until proven guilty”?
    All of the accusers should be expelled, and face criminal charges, as well as the school and school district being sued for BIG damages!
    I hope this young boy becomes a millionaire for his suffering!

    Let me guess…
    The school is won’t expunge the false criminal record of student because of his demeaner while be falsely accused, appearing too aggressive and mean. I bet that will be their excuse.

    Got a good feeling some people, including the school district, are really going to PAY BIG TIME!

    In the past several months, if I’ve said it once, twice, I’ll say it again and again. “No thanks to the #METOO movement, the only SAFE MALE IS A GAY MALE”. And these bitches just proved that. The school district and the DA thinks that this poor kids lawsuit is gender-biased? Are you kidding? By not expunging this kids records after being falsely accused and traumatized by not only the five girls and the school district, but also the DA, this goes to prove how ALL MALES are guilty until proven innocent. The parents lawsuits should be large enough and harsh enough to bankrupt the families involved and set the school board on a new course of financial ruin.

    So much for ALWAYS believing the “survivors”! I hope that the lawsuit costs the girls, the school district AND the city plenty! Since it is a civil lawsuit, I don’t think they will get jail time although they cause the boy to be jailed – TOO BAD!

      Except that won’t cost the girls anything – they have no money, their PARENTS have to pay. What would be appropriate is that the girls publicly apologize, their parents are forced to pay restitution to the boy and his family for all legal fees plus damages for emotional trauma. The girls should then be expelled from school and spend the remainder of their youth in a juvenile detention facility with counseling for their behavior, then be assigned to 100’s of hours of very public punitive community service in which they are clearly labeled as abusers. Their names should be made available so potential colleges and employers know who they are admitting/hiring.

      The school district should also have to pay damages to this child and his family in the form of a trust fund that he can draw from for the rest of his life to pay for counseling and college/job training. They should also be named and shamed for their failure to protect a child and for their part in perpetrating this abuse upon him.

      The prosecutor’s office should ALSO have to pay damages for their part in torturing this child.

      The idiotic ‘me too’ movement should come out publicly against women who do this to men and make it clear that this is not the objective of their ‘movement’ (never gonna happen).

      This has to stop NOW. There needs to be clear and swift punishment (loss of liberty, financial and personal reputation) for anyone who makes a false claim of abuse implicating an innocence person, whether it be for attention, revenge or mental illness. This would not dissuade true victims from reporting their crime because these reports are confidential anyway, they have nothing to lose.

    The girls who made the accusations should receive punishment, not the parents. Send their asses to jail for a few years and make an example out of them. The school should have to pay damages for their mistreatment of this poor kid too.

    This is what the Me Too movement is causing. And our education system is in the toilet. These girls should have been expelled.

    Totally disgusting! The last part when the spokesperson said
    “The number-one priority of the Seneca Valley School District is the safety and well-being of our students, staff, parents, and volunteers who enter our buildings. We have policies and procedures in place to protect individuals, and we communicate to all employees on these policies and work hard every day to provide a safe and caring learning environment for all.”

    I guess all does not include this young man. Shameful!

    These girls belong in jail – maybe that will shut down the lies! Shameful how the left takes a real issue and makes a mockey of it. The #Metoo movement is a joke- like a bunch of kids – “me too, me too! Now no woman can be believed. A-holes – vote republican!!!

    This is the way it has always been-if a female cries assault against a male, the male is guilty until proven innocent. It was that way back when I was in high school. We beat the shit out of a kid from our rival school because one of our girls said he touched her when she told him not to. Found out later that it was all a lie she told because the guy wouldn’t go out with her. It has always been this way. Women know they can ruin someones life by crying foul if they want to. And don’t let a female make a claim against a male in the workplace. The male would be fired on the spot. Females know this and use it to their advantage. Don’t tell me they don’t.
