L.A. School Sex Scandal

17-Year-Old Boy

Allegedly Molests 4-year-old

3/29/2012 5:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0329-LA-Adventist-Academy-googlemaps-EXTMZ has learned of another sex scandal at an L.A. school ... this time involving a 17-year-old high school student who allegedly was left alone with a classroom filled with 4-year-olds and then molested one of them. 

It happened at Los Angeles Adventist Discoveryland -- a religious institution that operates a child day care facility -- this according to a new lawsuit obtained by TMZ. 

According to the suit, in October, 2011, two teachers left a 17-year-old boy from the affiliated high school alone with a room filled with very young children.  The suit claims on two occasions the boy targeted a 4-year-old girl while she was napping on a cot, stuck his hand down her underpants and penetrated her anus with his finger.  The suit goes on to allege he also rubbed and touched her vagina, telling her to be quiet and close her eyes.
TMZ has obtained a document showing the boy was prosecuted in the juvenile justice system earlier this year. The lawyer for the girl -- legal juggernaut Donald E. Karpel -- tells us, "I was Informed by the DA's office that the juvenile pleaded guilty to one count of rape."

He adds, "To the outrage of the family, the judge sentenced the juvenile to only home probation. This is why these acts continue to be prevalent in our schools. How do I explain to a 4-year-old her loss of innocence at the hands of another."

The suit -- which is filed on the girl's behalf -- seeks unspecified damages.

It's the latest sex scandal in the L.A. schools ...  the most shocking is an elementary school teacher who allegedly spoon-fed semen to his students as part of a "tasting game."

"How do I explain to a 4-year-old her loss of innocence at the hands of another." Really? She doesn't even know what was going on. She will not have any recollection of the event in question!

How is this a TMZ story? No one famous is involved and the only thing that I can see is it took place in LA. A lot of stuff goes on in LA every day. I watch the news for things like this. I come here to make fun of idiot celebrities.

As horrible as this case sounds, it is NOT related to the LA County school district story, and tying them together is ridiculous.

10 times the amount of sex abuse goes unreported so to say it is a white crime is uninformed the more than 10 times the reported amount that goes unreported occurs in impoverished black communities , white children are told to report abuse ghetto children are told not to do so, all these perverts need extreme punishment this kid needs to be registered as a sex offender i understand 2 four year olds curious and playing doctor but most people are self aware at 17 no excuses

I'm just as disgusted with TMZ for giving explicit details. This is a child, not an adult pornstar. We didn't need to know exactly what the guy did to this poor child. Now I'm sure alot of your readers will be re-enacting it in their sick,perverted minds.

No, this isn't a celeb story but does take place in La-la land where values are slack and anything goes.

The teen that molested the girl was probably molested himself: that's a vicious cycle that needs to be stopped.
Children have to be shown what sex is....lock the teen up, give him chemical castration, have him tell on those who molested him or those he knows does these things and try to rehab him while young.
