A 14-year-old says she was raped by three boys in the school bathroom, one of whom is HIV-positive
SHE was suspended for reporting it
A ninth grader is on preventative HIV medication after reportedly being raped by three classmates in a high school bathroom.
The 14-year-old girl, who has not been identified, said she was forced to have sex with classmates at Miami Carol City Senior High School in Florida.
Her mom is now fundraising for legal and medical fees as one of the boys has gonorrhea and another is HIV-positive. According to the girl's mom, her daughter is still being tested for HIV and doctors have started her on preventative medicine to decrease the chance of infection.

Speaking to WSVN, the girl said: "I was going to leave [the bathroom], and he grabbed me by my sweater, and he held tight, and so I was going to pull and leave, and he wouldn’t let me go."
She said that's when the boy forced her to have anal sex.
The girl reported incidents of oral rape by two other boys to the school back in October. The three boys were suspended – but so was she.
"I felt like they would really just take the guys’ side, she said, "and they would just believe them, leave me out and say that, you know, it was all my fault."
She added that she is now in therapy for what happened.
The school district said: "School district administrators in conjunction with Miami-Dade Schools Police are investigating this case thoroughly, and it continues to be an active investigation. Information regarding the case has been provided to the State Attorney’s Office as well as the Department of Children and Families (DCF)."
A post from her mom on their GoFundMe says: "We want justice for my daughter the school system. It has to change it has been almost 3 months with any help from them!"
