CARSON, Calif. (KABC) – Shocking allegations of sexual activity among 4- and 5-year-olds have come out of a local pre-school in Carson, and the school is now shutting down.
Richard McCarthy says his 4-year-old son often received oral sex at school from a 5-year-old girl.
“He told me about all the bad things that girl had been doing to him,” McCarthy said. “It went down in the classroom, it went down in the bathroom and it went down out on the playground.”
At least one other boy at the First Lutheran Church of Carson School says he also received oral sex from the same girl.
“The two boys that have been introduced to this feeling that they don’t know how to process are still looking for it, and trying to make it happen,” McCarthy said.
The California Department of Social Services cited the school for at least one sexual incident between the kids, overall lack of supervision and an improper teacher-child ratio.
McCarthy and other parents are now joining attorney Greg Owen’s lawsuit against the school and the church.
“To boil it all down, it comes to supervision,” Owens said.
Parents are angry they were only given two weeks’ notice that the school is shutting down for now. Church leaders wouldn’t go on camera, but told Eyewitness News off-camera that there were only two incidents involving inappropriate touching among the kids, and those cases are closed.
