Denver, CO (WNews)- Denver School Board director-at-large Tay Anderson, a fervent Black Lives Matter activist, is accused of molesting over 60 undocumented students, using the residency status of the children to target kids as young as 14-years-old.
A parent delivered legislative testimony last Tuesday, claiming there is an unidentified sexual predator within the school system who has targeted students.
Brooks Fleming told the committee that 62 individuals had sought help handling the unnamed perpetrator. The abusive experiences ranged from unwanted touching to “violent acts of rape,” the woman said. 61 of the victims lacked documentation or were recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program with the youngest child just 14-years-old, Brooks Fleming stated.
Mary-Katherine Brooks Fleming, a parent of three Denver Public School students, spoke to the state House Judiciary Committee during public testimony in support of legislation that would make it easier for victims to sue institutions who employ child sexual abusers, the Denver Post reported.
“Those who came to my home didn’t have health insurance, couldn’t afford emergency rooms, and even if they could, they wanted to avoid mandatory reporters for fear that such an interaction could jeopardize their family,”
Brooks Fleming said in the legislative testimony. “It is horrifying to realize that someone had preyed on these children, knowing their silence was guaranteed.”
The Denver Public Schools board has hired a outside firm Investigation Law Group. On May 18, the school board said the firm was conducting final interviews and was expected to produce its report within the next 30 days.
