GANG-RAPED, SAYS HS GIRL 4 ATHLETES SUSPENDED AT QUEENS' CHRIST THE KING
New York Daily News, January 30, 2003

Four male athletes at a Catholic prep school in Queens were suspended yesterday after a female student charged they took turns sexually assaulting her while other boys watched, sources said.

None of the accused students from Christ the King Regional High School in Maspeth has been charged, but the matter is under investigation by the Queens district attorney's office, officials said.

"It's horrible. I can't even explain what she's gone through," the girl's mother told the Daily News, noting that her daughter was 15 when the assault took place on Halloween at the home of one of the boys.

The girl reported the attack to police last week after a teacher approached her to discuss rumors about an "incident."

Law enforcement officials said yesterday that investigators had yet to question the accused students but that at least two of the youths had hired a lawyer.

The attorney, Sean McNicholas, said his clients "were not targets. They're witnesses and they're cooperating fully."

The boys who allegedly watched the assault were not suspended, sources said.

Principal Michael Lynch and Queens state Sen. Serphin Maltese (R,C-Glendale), chairman of the school's board of trustees, did not return repeated calls seeking comment.

But the girl's mother, who agreed to talk to The News in the presence of her lawyer, Madeline Bryer, said her daughter saw one of her alleged attackers after the incident and he warned her to remain silent.

"Watch your mouth before I rape you," the boy told the victim, the mother said.

The girl's mother stressed that all four students - including athletes on the basketball, football and baseball teams - forced sex on her daughter. 'Home-schooled' "These boys are going through their life like nothing happened," the mother said. "She's seeing help for her mental state. She's got to be home-schooled while everybody else goes on with their day-to-day life."

The mother said that on the day of the incident, her daughter was with a girlfriend at a Kmart in Queens when they met two carloads of boys from school.

Eventually, the boys pressed both girls to go to a boy's house in Queens Village, and they agreed because the other girl was interested in one of the youths, the mother said.

At the house, the boys began serving rum and the victim's friend went upstairs with one boy, the mother said. Her daughter went to a basement bedroom, where the attack, which included rape and forced oral sex, occurred - with as many as six boys watching at one point.

"She's screaming," the mother said. "They just ignore her. She knows them by name. They finally stop."

Bryer said the boys then drove the girl home and "were telling her not to say anything. She's saying she was raped, and they're saying, 'You better not say that.' "

Last week, a teacher the girl trusts approached her, and she told the teacher what had happened.

The teacher told the principal, and the school called the girl's parents to the office to reveal the accusation.

That night, the girl went to police, the mother said.

At least two of the boys allegedly present during the attack played basketball Tuesday night in a home game against Brooklyn's Xaverian High School before the suspensions. Christ the King's basketball program is ranked No. 16 in the nation.
