THE family of a 16-year-old boy is suing his school after a female janitor allegedly sexually assaulted him there, according to a report.
Jessica Galyon, who worked at Midway High School in Kingston, Tennessee, is accused of raping the teenager after he apparently turned her down, Knoxville News Sentinel reported.
The 29-year-old allegedly starting sending the school boy “flirtatious and sexual messages” – even though he made it clear that they were “unsolicited, unwanted and unwelcome”.
According to the lawsuit, Galyon tried to coax the boy to a hotel room in September last year so they could have sex, but he refused her advances, telling her he didn’t want “any further contact” with her.
The teen eventually confronted Galyon about her persistent come-ons when she took him into a room at the shcool and allegedly raped him during school hours.
She allegedly swore him to secrecy, saying she could lose her job, husband and her children.
The suit said: “This was the first ever sexual encounter of any kind that [the boy] had ever had in his life.”
It claims Galyon’s continuous advances toward the boy were well known throughout the school – and that students and faculty bullied the boy by referring to her as his “girlfriend”.
One staffer even admitted to the boy that he was “jealous” of him “because he wanted to have sex with Galyon,” the lawsuit stated.
The bullying prompted the boy to drop out of Midway, enroll in homeschooling and attend weekly counselling sessions.
It’s unclear when exactly the rape occurred, but a month later, a school employee alerted the administration about it, leading to Galyon’s arrest February 23.
She is charged with sexual battery by an authority figure, aggravated statutory rape and statutory rape by an authority figure and was released on $15,000 bond.
Roane County Director of Schools Leah Watkins told WBTW News that Galyon was a contractor for the district, not an employee, and that she’d been barred from school property.
