Records: Sex assault among Idaho students found after attack


DIETRICH, Idaho — An Idaho school uncovered bullying, sexual harassment and sexual assault among students during its investigation into the rape of a black football player last year, according to recently released documents filed as part of a lawsuit.

Officials with Dietrich School District said they conducted 30 interviews with football players, coaches and parents, finding evidence of misconduct after the victim’s mother reported the attack on her son, the heavily redacted records said.

The boy’s family sued the school for $10 million in damages, claiming the sexual assault was the culmination of months of racist taunts and physical abuse in a tiny rural town that is predominantly white.
