Students disciplined in Florida bathroom sex incident

FORT MYERS, Fla. » Sixteen students in southwest Florida have been disciplined after they were found to be involved in sexual activity inside a high school restroom.

The News-Press reports that Lee County School District spokeswoman Amity Chandler said Wednesday that the punishment ranged across several levels. She didn’t specify what punishments were handed down.

The discipline followed the discovery that multiple male students had engaged in sexual activity with a female student in a restroom May 17.

Chandler says no further disciplinary actions are pending. She also said that when the incident occurred, after regular school hours, some adults were in the hallway where the bathroom was.

The Lee County Sheriff’s Office is checking into a cellphone video of the incident.

    • Now, imagine people like you celebrating when a student is denied the right to dignity. To say that this incident will result just because of a legislative rule is like saying that students will now enter the other restrooms to sexually assault other students. If you haven’t noticed this kind of thing happens regardless of whether or not restrooms are restricted or not. It is highly unlikely that a man will enter a women’s restroom just to prey on the opposite sex. Why? Because a man dressed as a woman would automatically bring attention to himself. And that is not what these offenders want when they enter the restroom for the opposite sex. So, as Penn and Teller would say to you, BS.
