ZELIENOPLE, Pa. -- Five "mean girls" at a Pennsylvania high school targeted a student with false sexual assault allegations, according to a lawsuit filed by the boy's parents.
The boy, who is being identified as "T.F.," "was forced to endure multiple court appearances, detention in a juvenile facility, detention at home, the loss of his liberty and other damages until several of the girls reluctantly admitted that their accusations were false" this summer.
The lawsuit also alleges that the school and district attorney didn't take any action against the females once the allegations were found to be false.
The girl who made the initial sexual assault claim allegedly said in a recorded interview that she did it because "I just don't like him."
According to the lawsuit, the sexual assault claims began to unravel when three of the witnesses admitted they lied.
