According to the Tennessee authorities, a 29-year-old woman, who works as a janitor at the Midway High School, has recently been arrested and charged with engaging in sexual relations with a minor. Jessica Galyon is accused of having raped a 16-year-old boy inside an empty classroom during school hours. The boy’s family has sued the school and the company that employed Galyon.
Female Janitor Accused of Rape
The parents of a 16-year-old high school student from Tennessee has recently filed a lawsuit against Compass One and the Roane County School for doing nothing to prevent the boy from being raped by a female janitor. According to the family’s attorney, the boy’s parents are demanding approximately $4.5 million in damages for what happened to their son last year, in September.
According to the authorities, the 16-year-old boy, who was not named since he’s was the victim of rape, met 29-year-old Jessica Galyon, the school’s female janitor in August. Galyon was employed by the Midway High School through Compass One, a cleaning company.
Even from the start, Galyon seemed to take a great interest in the 16-year-old high school student. In late August, the woman asked the boy for his Facebook profile in order to befriend him. Galyon sent a lot of messages to the 16-year-old old which were, according to the authorities, overtly flirtatious and, most of the time, of a sexual nature.
Galyon Sent Sexual Messages To the Boy
However, the boy did not seem interested in Galyon’s sexual advances. To this end, he told the woman, on more than one occasion, that he’s not interested in being with her. Their conversations would continue on the same line until September.
According to the authorities, the female school janitor wrote to the boy in late September that she wishes to have sex with him. Galyon also told the 16-year-old that she rented a hotel room in the area. The boy declined the woman’s invitation and made it clear that he doesn’t want to talk to her.
Irritated by the boy’s refusal, Galyon decides to take a more direct approach. And so, during school hours, the woman waited for the boy, shoved him inside an empty classroom, and raped him. The deed was brought to the authorities’ attention one month later after the boy confessed to one of his teachers about what Galyon did to him.
The female school janitor was arrested and charged with engaging in sexual relations with the minor. After his ordeal, the boy dropped out of school.
