MUNCIE, Ind. (WISH) - Delaware County prosecutors are taking a closer look at Muncie schools, even announcing a new policy, after the school system took a spotlight when a student reported being raped in a school bathroom.
Deputy Prosecutor Rric Hoffman says the new policy states, "Administrators can't interfere with police on campus."
The rule comes after prosecutors claim school administrators haven't been reporting violence on campus.
24-Hour News 8 Reporter Jacqueline Policastro talked with Muncie Community Schools Superintendent Eric King.
“Our goal is to always work with campus police,” King said.
However, officers say that isn't happening. They maintain troubles at Muncie schools have escalated under King's watch.
The study of the school is happening as prosecutors are working on a case of alleged rape that happened at Muncie Central High School back in November.
A young teen says she was pulled into the school bathroom and sexually assaulted by another student.
Her attorney says the crime scene wasn't preserved and that his client was held in school instead of being taken to the hospital.
“They made a mistake, and the long term effect will be felt for the victim for the rest of her life,” said attorney Nathaniel Lee.
Superintendent King is now being held criminally liable for not reporting the rape accusation last November.
He plans to step down at the end of the school year.
