New York special-needs student wins $28M rape lawsuit

A woman with special needs has won $28 million in a lawsuit seven years after she was raped as a Mount Vernon High School student.

Lawyers for the woman, who is now 21 years old, said a jury ruled in their favor against the Mount Vernon school district on Friday, almost seven years after the victim was allowed to go home on a public bus instead of a school bus, a mistake her lawyers say led to a sexual assault, bullying and a brutal school beating.
