Mom blames Mt. Vernon School District after 14-year-old is allegedly raped
Police have arrested a 19-year-old Mount Vernon man for allegedly raping a 14-year-old girl last Friday. The girl's mother says the rape happened after officials at the Alfred Franko Middle School let the girl leave class with 19-year-old Dorian Rose.
According to the mother, Rose gave a false name and said he had to take the young girl out of class so she could appear in court. School officials apparently did not check Rose's identification. They allegedly let him sign the girl out, despite the fact that she is only allowed to be released to the custody of her mother or grandmother.
The mother says she did not know that her daughter, who is developmentally disabled, was taken out of school until she tried to pick her up in the afternoon. When the girl returned to her house, she told her mother that she had been raped.
Dorian Rose was arrested on Monday and will appear in court on Wednesday to face rape charges. The Mount Vernon School District is currently investigating the incident and trying to determine if they need to change any school sign-out procedures.
The Alfred Franko Middle School is also dealing with another abuse allegation. Last Friday, the father of a different 14-year-old girl says his daughter received e-mails soliciting sex from a teacher's aide. The teacher's aide, 19-year-old John Isaac, faces charges of endangering the welfare of a child and harassment.
