(Edit May 11, 2018) Here is the most recent version of the lawsuit filed against KISD, dismissing all defendants except Mr. Milton , the below version of the lawsuit is outdated, but I will keep it up for historical purposes. The document below was what I received from KISD through a FOI request, so that is what I posted. Upon hearing there was an updated version, I’m publishing this as well.
On April 7th, 2017, a lawsuit was filed by “Jane Doe” against Defendants Katy ISD, Alton Fraily, Lance Hindt, Rick Hull, Obra “O.D.” Thompkins Jr., and Robert Evan Milton.
Points of interest:
Milton located Doe on social media and contacted her using electronic messaging. His messages were inappropriate at the outset, but quickly crossed into grossly inappropriate when Milton sexted Doe with photos of his penis.”
During Doe’s sophomore and junior years at Katy High School, Milton would make inappropriate and often flirtatious comments to Doe. Upon information and belief, other students of Katy High School made the school administration aware of Milton’s behavior which often crossed the line. Katy ISD and the other named defendants did nothing to address these serious concerns.
Milton began communicating with Doe outside of school, messaging her through her social media accounts such as his Instragram account under the nickname rbmltn. See below.
Milton enticed Doe into a sexual relationship, often paying for motels in which they would have sex after school or picking Doe up for sex in his car.
Upon investigation of Milton’s conduct, Doe and her parents learned that Milton previously engaged in another improper relationship with at least one other Katy ISD student, although there are others upon information and belief.
Milton met Jackie (a pseudonym) when he was a teacher at Mayde Creek High School, also within Katy Independent School District.
During his relationship with Jackie, which took place in approximately 2000- 2001, Milton sent letters to Jackie indicating that he wanted to be more than a big brother to her.
Jacki’s uncle found these letters and reported Milton’s conduct to Mayde Creek principal and defendant O.D. Thompkins.
Rather than discipline Milton for his inappropriate conduct and make a report to the authorities, Thompkins and Katy ISD conspired with Milton to conceal his transgressions and transferred him to Katy High School where he later preyed upon Doe.
Rather than immediately address the issue, defendants showed deliberate indifference to the rights of students, including Jackie and Doe, by failing to take action that was obviously necessary to prevent or stop the abuse.
