“They want you to ignore the evidence,” said attorney Chris Miller, who argued that the Fayette County Board of Education ignored allegations of sex abuse...“We can’t allow this to happen in our community,” Miller said.
Miller asked for $2.16 million in lost wages from the educational opportunities he says Maner, now 45, was denied because of the alleged abuse...
Attorney Larry C. Deener, representing the school board, said administrators were not aware of any abuse allegations and did not cause Maner’s injuries.
He said Maner’s story is illogical and doesn’t add up...If that’s the case, Deener said, then why didn’t she tell state social workers who investigated child abuse in the Maner household? Why would she allow Maner to go to Florida on spring break with art teacher Roberta Blackwell, an alleged abuser?
The case has gone to the jury.
