A Brooklyn school is under fire after having suspended a mentally disabled girl who claimed she was gang-raped in the property.

The fifteen-year-old was reportedly walking to meet a teacher, when she was cornered by seven male students in a school stairway and forced to perform sexual acts on two of them.

The traumatized student reported the alleged incident to her counselor six days later, but after investigating the case, the school decided it seemed consensual, and suspended her for having sex on campus. She was kept out of school for two months before the institution allowed her back in.

The disabled girl’s family has now filed a lawsuit against the school, claiming the teen now suffers from extreme anxiety, sleeplessness, hair loss, skin rashes, anger issues, and PTSD, among other things, thanks to the rape.

"My client is a 15-year-old girl of color on public assistance with a severe developmental disorder who was gang raped at her Brooklyn school and then suspended for it," said the girl’s lawyer, Carrie Goldberg.

One of the alleged attackers was arrested and charged with sexual misconduct after the abuse. According to a report, however, the Brooklyn District Attorney's office declined to provide the outcome of the charges.
