A gang sex assault of a mentally challenged girl was “consensual” because the attackers also have low IQs, Long Island police say.
The Nassau County police abruptly dropped the case of three ninth-grade boys who allegedly attacked a mentally challenged Manhattan girl during science class because her attackers’ own mental deficiencies, along with the victim’s, made it “not something for us to get into,” the Daily News has learned.
On May 8, two boys forced the 15-year-old girl to perform oral sex, then attempted to anally sodomize her, while another boy banged her on the head at the Martin De Porres Academy, a school for special-needs kids and juvenile delinquents in Elmont, says her attorney.
When the girl returned home that night, “she was quiet and very sad looking” and had blood on her panties, her heartbroken mother told The News.
The next day, the school’s social worker called. “She said my daughter was sexually assaulted,” the mother said.
So she took her daughter to the hospital, where staffers called police.
Unbeknownst to the mother, weeks later school administrators asked the Nassau County police to drop the case.
