Hernandez said schools should be sensitive to the traumas of students and staff and provide services for not only physical, but also emotional health.
The boys, both 15, have been arrested and charged in juvenile court with felony second-degree sexual assault and fourth-degree sexual assault, which is a misdemeanor. One boy is also charged with kidnapping, and the other is charged with being party to a crime of kidnapping.
According to a search warrant filed Monday in Dane County Circuit Court:
The girl told police she and another boy were in school on April 10 after classes ended, and she perceived a statement from the boy as asking if she wanted to have sex with him. The girl said she was waiting for her father to pick her up, and he grabbed her backpack and ran into a bathroom.
She followed him into the bathroom, telling police they were friends and she thought the boy was “playing.”
A second boy entered the bathroom, the girl told police, and they both blocked her from leaving before raping her as she attempted to push them away.
