TEXARKANA, Ark. (AP) — The mother of a Trinity Christian School student says officials at the Texarkana school pressured her daughter into revealing her pregnancy and forced the girl into medical testing and counseling without notifying her family.
A lawsuit names the school's principal, Bible teacher, counselor and administrator, along with the school and the church with which it is affiliated. The school's attorney denies the accusations.
The woman, identified only as Mother Doe, alleges false imprisonment and civil rights violations. She says Principal Larry Berry expelled the girl last May after he learned the girl was pregnant.
