"....he was being suspended over a sexual harassment investigation, for which he would ultimately miss seven football games and spend 13 days in disciplinary school. But the district attorney’s office never brought any charges, [NyKisha] Owens argued."
The incident was handled "in-house" which is the way most conduct problems are handled. In the professional judgement of CCISD officials this conduct resulted in school discipline only, not a matter for the District Attorney's office.
Discretionary Placement: Misconduct That May Result in DAEP Placement - A student may be placed in a DAEP if the student commits any of the following offenses on school property or while attending a school-sponsored or school-related activity on or off school property.
E. Engaging in conduct that constitutes sexual harassment or sexual abuse whether the conduct is by word, gesture, or any other sexual conduct, including requests for sexual favors, and the dissemination of sexually oriented materials.
“Although we understand there were no charges brought forward, the CCHS administration feels that through our investigation to date, the above behavior occurred,” Principal Jamey Majewski wrote to [NyKisha] Owens in an Oct. 22 email.

Were you there to see it with your own eyes? Allegedly is a word you know. You are always so quick to point out things with African Americans, but I haven't seen you post one things about the TOPLESS EVENT where those thugs were fighting and tore up the island. Why don't you do us all a favor and stop. You are not an attorney nor do you work in the legal profession. Anybody can get a book or quote from the internet, standards, policy, code of conduct or rules of law. Not impressive at all.

"You are always so quick to point out things with African Americans..."
Where is a anyone's Race mentioned in my post? As a school teacher I never looked at a person's race, creed, ethnic origin, gender to determine what punishment is to be rendered. Always go by the book.
And I did post about the events at Crystal Beach. What it has to do with this topic is beyond me.
I'm not here to impress you. I'm here to offer my opinion on an article's topic.

There were PLENTY of blacks at the Crystal Beach crap show Tamala. Go to YouTube and search the event.
