Lawsuit: Pike School alum says he was raped by female teacher at age 15


The lawsuit noted that John had "significant academic potential, as demonstrated by his 800 score on his verbal SAT and 660 on the math portion, and his admission to Groton on a full scholarship."

However, his school work at Groton suffered because of his "sexual obsession with defendant Elefante, and he left after the 10th grade," according to the complaint.He later graduated from Andover High School, despite attending about half of his classes, because he was skipping school to meet Elefante for sex. When he went to college, Elefante sold him a car for $3,000 so he could commute home to see her. He initially withdrew from college before the end of his first spring semester, then left school before the end of the following fall term.

The victim didn't graduate from college until last October, when he received a bachelors degree from Western Governors University in Salt Lake City, Utah.
