So, we don't know all the details associated with how that elite prep school initially handled alleged inappropriate sexual activity by star athlete Chukwudi Ikpeazu. The alleged victim was another student Michaella Henry.
But the suspicion is that PEA was focused on protecting its reputation rather than providing for the mental of the victim. Here is the article in Daily Mail.
Essentially what is known is that Ikpeazu allegedly groped the breasts and rear end of Henry. When she reported this to the school, the police were not notified. Instead Ikpeazu was given the "penance" of baking and delivering bread weekly to the victim. Because of that constant reminder of what had happened, she allegedly began to suffer panic attacks. The school claims it did not notify the police because the alleged incident was classified as sexual harassment, not sexual assault. It has different policies and procedures for handling each.
Long story short, the police had been called in. The parent, who had not been notified that all this had been going on was notified. And the world has yet another potential school-for-scandal story.
One wonders if this is juicy enough for Vanity Fair to do an article? Will heads roll at the PEA? And will there be lawsuits?
