Strip Search is Sexual Assault. On a 12-year-old, It's Damn Near Rape.

The reason excuse for doing it is irrelevant.  It's inexcusable.  Especially since it was probably committed on a non-conforming child for the express purpose of intimidating her into obedience.  No doubt the school officials got sexually aroused by it.

The father of a 12-year-old girl on Thursday filed a federal lawsuit against the Clark County Public Schools board alleging her rights were violated when she was strip-searched at school.
The girl, only identified in the lawsuit as “K.K.” , was called to the counseling office at Roy D. Campbell Junior High School in Winchester in October. She was asked to” strip down to her underwear” and searched by counselor Becca Boyd and assistant principal Kris Creteau, the lawsuit said.

The lawsuit does not say why the girl was searched. 

It alleges that the school board had not adequately trained the employees on investigating students and the legal rights of children. It said that Boyd and Creteau severely “frightened, alarmed and humiliated” the girl and as a direct result, she suffered emotional anguish.

The lawsuit said the girl’s constitutional rights were violated when she was subjected to arbitrary action, unreasonable search and deliberate indifference for her civil rights. It alleges that Boyd and Creteau are liable, “under state law, for invasion of privacy, assault, negligence , and intentional infliction of emotional distress.”

The child’s father is seeking compensatory and punitive damages in an unspecified amount sufficient to deter the Clark employees and other school officials from engaging in unconstitutional conduct, the suit says.

Clark County Schools officials did not immediately comment.
