"Former Student Sues District Over Janitor Convicted of Groping: Suit Claims Belmont-Redwood Shores School District Ignored, Concealed, Decade of Conduct"
The Belmont-Redwood Shores School District knew that a former Ralston Middle School janitor had been sexually inappropriate with several girls before being jailed for groping a student in 2010, according to a lawsuit by a former student who claims her 2001 assault would have been prevented had officials acted on earlier incidents.
Roxanne Pedro, now an adult, said in the suit filed Wednesday that the district and employees including now County Superintendent Anne Campbell not only turned "a blind eye to [Andre] Edwards' propensity for abuse" but also took "affirmative steps" to hide his history such as sealing a 1996 investigation and not contacting police.
