Earlier this month, Symone Greene, a 22-year-old substitute teacher at Options Public Charter School in Washington, D.C., allegedly provided oral sex to a 17-year-old male student on the first day of her teaching assignment, in her classroom, right behind the teacher’s desk.
As a result of the frisky encounter, the family of the 17-year-old male student has now filed a $3 million lawsuit, NBC Washington reports.
The impressively-quickly-filed lawsuit claims that Greene, a substitute English teacher, made malicious contact with the student.
The suit names Greene, the current managers of Options Charter, the Washington, D.C. Public Charter School Board and SOS Personnel, the company that hired Greene, as defendants.
The events giving rise to the suit occurred on Friday, Oct. 17. At some point after Greene arrived as a substitute English teacher at the charter school for at-risk youth, she met the unidentified, 17-year-old student because he had been assigned office work in her classroom — Room 266.
They flirted. The confident boy gave Greene, just five years his senior, his phone number.
The two new acquaintances exchanged a few messages. At one point, police say, the student asked Greene if she is “kinky.” She responded, mysteriously: “I dont tell I show.”
Later in the day, while a football pep rally was going on, the substitute teacher and the student convened back in the classroom where he fondled her and she engaged in oral sex. The student, a football player himself, asked Greene to engage in a number of sexual acts equal to the number on his football jersey.

The oral sex incident became public knowledge because the student bragged to several people about it. Also, he filmed it.
Greene now faces a felony charges of first-degree sexual abuse of a minor. She has pleaded not guilty.
The age of consent in the District of Columbia is 16. However, because Greene was the student’s teacher for a day, criminal charges apply.
The family’s lawsuit demands $3 million because, it claims, Greene was “unqualified to serve as a teacher” at the charter school for at-risk youth. Also, Greene may have exposed the student to sexually transmitted diseases by providing oral sex. Also, the student has a learning disability. And Greene clearly violated Options Charter’s policy against student cell phone usage by exchanging texts with him.
Lawsuits against female teachers who have sex with underage male students are becoming more common across America.
In March, a now-adult male student sued a Texas school district and his one-time teacher because, he claims, all the sex he had with the teacher so stunted him emotionally that was forced to delay entry into the Marine Corps.

In April, a Scranton, Penn. attorney indicated plans to file a lawsuit on behalf of a male high school student who claims he had sex with a 31-year-old high school English teacher. The attorney said the student was “a victim of sexual assault” who suffered “damages and injuries.” (Sex With This Teacher Was So Traumatic For A Male Teenager He Plans To Sue His High School)
In February, still another male student who had a passionate affair with a Southern California high school teacher and is now the father or her child filed a lawsuit against the local school district. The unidentified dad, now 18, also cast blame on the teacher’s parents, who stepped in to help raise the child while the wayward teacher served a prison sentence.
