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.
Never miss a local story.
Kudos to the jury. I hope the girl and her family can find some peace with this award.
