Former Des Moines student claims sexual assault in school parking lot

WEST DES MOINES, Iowa - A former Dowling Catholic High School student files a lawsuit claiming she was sexually assaulted.

The school, a principal, a teacher, a counselor and a former student are listed as defendants.

Court records say the 17-year-old student was allegedly forced to perform oral sex on a recent Dowling graduate in the school parking lot in 2017.

The lawsuit says the school and staff failed to provide adequate security, follow a safety plan, investigate the incident and violated the victim’s privacy.

No criminal charges have been filed. The alleged suspect is the son of two Dowling staff members.
