HONOLULU (AP) - Lawyers defending Hawaii's public school system in a lawsuit alleging a special education student raped a classmate called the alleged victim to testify. But they didn't ask her any questions about the 2013 incident.
A lawsuit by the girl's mother says that Waianae High School officials didn't do enough to prevent the alleged assault and didn't take the allegations seriously. The lawsuit says a boy in the girl's class raped her in a unisex bathroom.
Her mother's attorney says the girl has the intellectual capacity of a second-grader. An attorney defending the state education department asked about letters the girl wrote in class. Under questioning by her mother's attorney, the girl wasn't able to read a letter she typed in 2013.
Jurors are expected to begin deliberations on Friday.
