The teen girl’s mother has accused the Dallas Independent School District following it allowed a 25-year-old man to register as a student and basketball player. Then he went on to be charged with physically abusing the teen girl.
According to a source, Sidney Gilstrap-Portley registered in 2017 at Hillcrest High School by showing to be a homeless, 17-year-old student who was a Hurricane Harvey evacuee named Rashun Richardson. Almost instantly, Gilstrap-Portley entered the basketball team and became a lead player.
According to a source, Gilstrap-Portley then started a physical relationship with one of his classmates, a teen girl who is 14 years old at the high school.
The matter was presented public about a year before. Still, the girl’s mother has now registered a claim alleging Gilstrap-Portley of preparing her daughter for a physical relationship and banging the Dallas Independent School District for failing to defend her kid, told the woman’s lawyer, Mai Mullen Milton.
The suit also accuses the school department of neglecting “red flags” and not adhering to the rules established by the University Interscholastic League, the rule-making group for high school sports in Texas.
It needs school communities to conduct a home visit to authenticate the residency of any transfer student wanting to join a school athletic team. Nevertheless, national law doesn’t question those who are homeless because of a natural catastrophe to give residency documents.
