A Washington, D.C., high school principal was recorded mocking a student’s sexual assault claim made last June, according to a lawsuit and an audio recording obtained by the Washington Post.

The girl, who is not named by the post,  allegedly went to Aqueelha James, principal of Roosevelt High School, to report a sexual assault.  A male student reportedly forced her into the bathroom, began kissing her and tried to put his hand up her dress.

She escaped but said he left a hickey on her neck, which the girl cites as evidence of the incident in the recording of a meeting with school officials. The girl’s mother, also not named, reportedly left her cell phone in the conference room by mistake. The phone recorded audio of the principal’s comments.

Initially, James seemed supportive. “I’m here to support and be of assistance,” James told the girl and her mother. “I don’t like the idea that your daughter has been assaulted sexually. It is a crime.”

But after the girl and her mother left the room, James can be heard saying that she was “sick of her and her mom” and that she planned to try to “embarrass her ass.” James also criticized the girl for the dress she was wearing.

“This is a bunch of bullshit,” James added.

She also had this to say about the girl’s allegations:

“This . . . is going to compromise her,” James said. “And that’s why I’m going to go the extra mile and call MPD. That’s why I’m going to do all of this . . . because I’m sick of her. . . . So I’m going to call MPD, I’m going to have a long, drawn-out email just so that I can embarrass her.”

The mother is suing James and the D.C. government in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. The lawsuit, which is seeking at least $5 million in actual and punitive damages, claims that James and school officials did not investigate the sexual assault allegations adequately and that James defamed the child by calling her credibility into question to police officers.

    Since you have such disdain for black people why are you on this web site? You are on here everyday with all of your negativity and disgusting language about black people. Actually it seems like you really need a life other than being a coward behind a keyboard and say nasty things about others.

      • WTF??? You black people are so damn stupid! What does that mean? Reading the posts from you blacks is amazing, really. To see the severe grammatical errors mixed with the ebonics just makes you scratch your head. You say the damndest things and usually what you do try to say is almost the exact opposite of the truth.
