CLAIM SCHOOL OFFICIALS FAILED TO PROTECT THEM. CBS 2’S DANA KOZLOV HEARD FROM ONE OF THOSE VICTIMS FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME TONIGHT. Reporter: IT’S BEEN ALMOST FIVE YEARS SINCE SHE WAS CHARGED WITH SEXUALLY ABUSING TWO FORMER STUDENTS. IT’S BEEN MORE THAN 10 SINCE THE ALLEGED ABUSE BEGAN. WHEN SHE WAS A BASKETBALL COACH AT STERLING JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL. STARTED GROOMING MY CLIENTS ULTIMATELY SEXUALLY ABUSED HER. Reporter: FACING SEVEN COUNTS OF AGGRAVATED CRIMINAL SEXUAL ABUSE FOR THE CASES ALTHOUGH THE ABUSE ALLEGEDLY BEGAN IN 2008 SHE WASN’T CHARGED UNTIL VICTIM JANE DOE CAME FORWARD IN 2015. WHEN SHE WAS READY TO DEAL WITH IT SHE WENT TO THE POLICE DEPARTMENT AND MADE A COMPLAINT. Reporter: WHILE CRIMINAL CASE DRAGGED THROUGH THE COURT, A CIVIL CASE IS ON HOLD. JEAN HOLLANDER ALLEGES SUPERINTENDENT DENNIS WAS MADE AWARE OF THE ABUSE BY A FORMER DISTRICT OFFICIAL BUT CHOSE ONLY TO CALL HER AND TELL HER TO STOP IT. NO COMPLAINT WAS MADE TO THE POLICE DEPARTMENT. MORE IMPORTANTLY SHE NEVER CALLED DCS AND REPORTED THE ALLEGATION. Reporter: HOLLANDER SAYS THE ABUSE WENT ON FOR THREE MORE YEARS. IT’S ALARMING BECAUSE YOU HAVE THE HEAD OF THE SCHOOL DISTRICT WHO IS A TRAINED REPORTER WHO NEVER MADE A COMPLAINT. INVESTIGATION WOULD HAVE TAKEN PLACE. THE ABUSE WOULD HAVE STOPPED. Reporter: I LEFT A MESSAGE WITH DISTRICT 135 FOR COMMENT. NONE WAS GIVEN TO ME. I ASKED TO SPEAK WITH JANE DOE WHO DOESN’T WANT TO BE IDENTIFIED BUT TELLS ME I HAVE A DIFFICULT TIME TRUSTING OTHERS DEALING WITH INTENSE ANXIETY, PTSD AND DEPRESSION FROM THE ALLEGED ABUSE. REGARDING HER THE VICTIM SAYS I THINK SOCIETY PUTS GENDER INTO PLAY AND I THINK BECAUSE SHE’S A WOMAN, IT MIGHT BE SHE WON’T GET AS MUCH PUNISHMENT SO I’M JUST LOOKING FOR AS MUCH JUSTICE AS I CAN GET. AND HER LAWYER JEAN HOLLANDER SAYS THE CIVIL LAWSUIT IS ALSO ABOUT SENDING A MESSAGE TO ALL SCHOOL OFFICIALS. TO PUT STUDENTS FIRST AND REPORT POSSIBLE ABUSE.
