Fort Worth LE - School staff forced third-grader to shower
School staff forced third-grader to shower for being 'smelly, dirty.'
Two Texas school employees are being sued by the parents of a third-grade boy, stating that they forced their son to strip and shower in from of them due to him "smelling bad, dirty, and had bad hygiene."
It's terrible, and we don't want anything like that to happen to any other children," Amber Tilley told NBC Dallas-Fort Worth.
Amber and Michael Tilley, the child's parents, filed a police report; however, no charges were laid. On Thursday, the Tilleys filed their lawsuit against Peaster Independent School District, as well as Peaster Elementary School staff employees Julie West and Debbie Van Rite in federal court.
The incident left the boy "visibly and severely distraught," and had to see a therapist after, according to the lawsuit.
"He just kept on and on, wanting to take baths," Amber Tilley said. "You know, he just felt so disgusting."
She added that her son did not have a problem with body odor or hygiene.
