Teacher accused of having sex with 8 students
MIAMI DADE COUNTY, Fla. (CBS12) —
A lawsuit alleges a Miami-Dade County teacher had sex with 8 students, and the school district in charge did nothing to protect students.
This story dates back to 2008 when the Principal of Krop High School in Miami-Dade County received an email about Jason Meyers, a teacher, accusing him of having sex with students.
The school district is accused of never investigating, and allowing Meyers to transfer to Miami Palmetto Senior High School in 2011.
According to a lawsuit just filed, Meyers continued to have sex with 8 current and former students. They were known as, "Jason's Girls."
The lawsuit also stated Meyer's behavior may have gone beyond sexual harassment. It alleges that Meyer's forcibly kissed and groped the girls.
Meyers was arrested in February of last year on charges of sexual battery of a minor involving one of the Palmetto students. He was fired shortly after the arrest.
The suit also raised another troubling allegation that the Miami-Dade school district did little or nothing to protect students.
