Kansas school allowed violent felon convicted of murder to pick up 14-year-old girl, taken to motel and raped

By EMILY CRANE FOR DAILYMAIL.COM

A woman, now aged 21, has filed a lawsuit against Kansas City Public Schools claiming her school allowed convicted felon Roy Andrews (above) to take her out of class in 2010 and rape her. A violent felon was allowed to pick up a 14-year-old girl from a Missouri high school without permission before raping her in a motel, a lawsuit alleges.

The student, who is now aged 21, claims she was in class at Lincoln College Preparatory Academy in Kansas City in May 2010 when Roy Andrews came to the school.

Andrews, a family acquaintance who had spent years in prison for murder, told the school the girl’s parents wanted him to pick her up.

But he was not authorized to take her out of school and had not been given permission by the teen’s parents.

The girl claims Andrews took her to a motel room after checking her out of school and raped her.

Her parents filed a police report about the alleged rape, but he was never charged as a result.

The girl is now suing multiple people, including Kansas City Public Schools, the former principal at Lincoln College Preparatory Academy and an attendance secretary at the school.

The lawsuit, obtained by DailyMail.com, alleges the school ignored its own policies by allowing her to leave with Andrews.

As part of a student’s enrollment at Lincoln Prep, parents are required to complete a form listing all individuals who are authorized to pick up their child from school, the lawsuit states.

The girl’s mother had never listed Andrews as an authorized person.

The suit claims the attendance secretary did not try to contact the girl’s parents to confirm Andrews had permission to pick her up.

Andrews had previously spent 16 years in prison for murder in 1990 and served a separate two years sentence after pleading guilty in 2007 to felony assault for shooting a man.

The lawsuit states that the victim’s parents would never have given Andrews authorization to pick up the student given his ‘predatory reputation’.

In 2012, two years after the alleged rape of the girl, DNA evidence linked him to an old rape case involving a woman and her 11-year-old daughter in 1990.

Andrews is currently serving an 18-year prison sentence for those two rapes.

The recent lawsuit against Kansas City Public Schools is seeking unspecified damages.

The school district said it does not comment on pending litigation.
