Moore student makes disturbing allegations, claims she was touched inappropriately

It was but one encounter that female students have had with this particular male student, KFOR reports.
She claimed the same student has been sending disturbing messages to the girls since fall 2020. Freeman also told KFOR she and her sister complained to the school’s principal multiple times. “No matter how many times we’ve gone to the principal, nothing has happened,” said Freeman. “It progressed from just regular bullying to sexual harassment. Now, we’re at the point that it’s become a sexual assault.”

One mom told KFOR off-camera, the same male sent her daughter a disturbing message on Snapchat. She claimed he wrote things no child should be exposed to. “He’s constantly talking about how he wants to touch them and how he’s going to hurt them and all of their friends,” the mom said.

None of this is new. "[S]exual assault and harassment in schools is severely under-reported," Mid-Del 8th-grade teacher Aaron Baker observed in 2018. "Every day all across the United States, educators witness countless examples of female students being touched without consent. We have a culture problem in our schools." 

In 2014, state Rep. Rebecca Hamilton (D-Oklahoma City) observed: "Based on what I heard from my constituents, sexual harassment of girls in our public schools is close to being pro forma. ...Your daughter has a much better chance of growing up to be a strong, independent young woman if she can skip this abuse during her formative years."
