Hundreds of students across Virginia walked out of class to demand safety in their schools. This comes after a teen boy was found guilty of raping a classmate.
The Loudoun County students said they’re standing in solidarity with sexual assault victims and took aim at school officials for failing to protect them. On Monday, a 15-year-old boy was found guilty of raping a girl in the girls restroom while wearing a skirt.
His arrest came two months after the attack and prompted allegations of a coverup. The student went on to sexually assault another girl at a different school, a case in which he faces sexual battery and abduction charges.
Students across the district are now calling for accountability and increased safety measures. In addition, the girls’ father said he plans to file a lawsuit against the school system over the matter.
