As we mentioned earlier, the freshman’s mother mentioned to coach McElroy the fact that the upperclassman was calling her son those insulting names. This incident could have been foreseeable by the coaches, and possibly the administration, if the coach reported anything to the principal and athletic director. The Mepham High School football season was eventually cancelled and the three upperclassman were charged with “involuntary deviate sexual intercourse,” “aggravated assault,” “kidnapping,” “unlawful restraint,” “false imprisonment,” “terroristic threats,” “criminal coercion,” “simple assault,” “reckless endangering of another person,” “ethnic intimidation,” and “criminal conspiracy.” Judge Robert J. Conway chose to try the accused as juveniles.
Mr. James Kimball, at 23 years old, was a school bus driver who pursued a 15 year old student he’d known for two years. Eventually their “flirtatious” relationship escalated to a “single-sexual encounter” on or about October 3, 1991. The relationship was brought to light by the parents of the child henceforth urging Mr. Kimball to plead guilty to one count of statutory rape in 1992, where the judge then imposed a withheld judgment with a three year probation. After that, Mr. Kimball was accordingly put on the Sex Offender Registry. Due to the essence of the given facts and case report, the disparity in time from the crime to the present, and the technicality of the psychosexual evaluator’s report, I would not have aired the story on Mr.James Kimball.

It is accepted and required that a mother have time off to spend with her newborn baby, and most, if not all employers give their employees days off during a time of emotional trauma. How is Jason Dunlap’s case much different from either of these acknowledged exceptions? However, LaMark Elementary School refused to authorize any vacation time or even attempt to lighten Mr. Dunlap’s work load during a time when he was in a strenuous medical position. To complete his therapy, Mr. Dunlap had to take medication that caused him to be drowsy and fatigued, both conditions that could inhibit his ability to complete jobs to the best of his capability. Rather than acknowledging that Mr. Dunlap was in need of a more relaxed work environment for a brief period after ten years of loyal employment, the school board decided to punish him for simply being himself.

First, she focuses on the practitioner’s needs to concentrate on the minor and major signs and symptoms of abuse, and if there is any of the child’s welfare services needs to be informed.
