A father of a 4-year-old boy said his son received oral sex from a 5-year-old girl at First Lutheran Church of Carson School.
The man said he thought at first that it was an isolated incident of children playing but then child protective services showed up at his house.
"My son and this female student were found in the bathroom with my son’s pants and underwear around his ankles,” said the man, whose name is being withheld to protect his son. “They have a sworn statement that an adult witnessed the little girl performing oral sex on my son.”
Greg Owen, an attorney for the family, said the California Department of Social Services has cited the school for a lack of supervision and one sexual incident, but he's also representing several clients who say there have been multiple incidents of children performing oral sex at the school.
“You have at least seven children performing these acts on each other," Owen said.
School officials have notified parents they are closing the doors next Friday, but they said the closure is not related to the sex allegations.
"The decision to go into an inactive status was made based on the fact that our director has resigned for personal reasons,” school officials said in a statement. “We have not been able to secure a full time director in a timely manner.”
The father of the alleged victim said at this point his son cannot return to school because of what he has been exposed to.
“My son's been introduced to a feeling that he doesn’t know how to explain.”
