NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The parents of a Long Island girl are suing the Bellmore-Merrick Central High School District after they say their daughter was bullied for years and the district did nothing to stop it.
The family’s attorney, Jacques Simon, told WCBS 880’s Sophia Hall that children bullied the girl, now 14, from 2009-13. The bullying included sending her lewd videos on the Internet and death threats, Simon said.
“She got threatened to be gunned down by a child,” Simon said. “The district did nothing. They put the child on the same bus with the minor plaintiff. And for a whole year, the minor thought that she was going to get killed.”
