Venice High School Shaken by Sexual Assault Allegations

Hosted by

Parents and teachers were shocked when an 11th student was arrested, yesterday, at Venice High School for alleged sex crimes. Ten others, all boys from 14 to 17 years old, were arrested Friday, and police are still looking for three other students. The arrests are connected to alleged sex crimes against two female students over a period of more than a year. According to authorities, some of the incidents were coerced and some were consensual. We hear about the legal ins and outs from a defense attorney, and concerns about the high school’s security from a teacher there.
