Mother Of Girl Who Sustained Rope Injuries Sues Private School

Sandy Rougely is the mother of a 12-year-old girl who suffered serious rope burns during an overnight school-sanctioned trip to a ranch in Blanco County on April 28, 2016. Rougely is now filing a lawsuit against the Waco-based Live Oak Classical School, seeking $3 million in damages.

According to court documents, the plaintiff is seeking said amount to “not only compensate the victims in this case, but to deter this type of egregious conduct from others in the future, and to serve as an example to all educational institutions that this type of behavior is unacceptable with regard to both the treatment of children and their parents.” Rougely’s daughter was playing with a rope swing that ended up being around her neck, which caused her to fall to the ground. Looking around her, the child said she saw three white boys who had been picking on her standing behind her. Rougely believes the incident was a racially motivated act of bullying.
