Girl Sues Birmingham High, Athletic Trainer, Alleging Sexual Abuse


A former Birmingham Community Charter High School student is suing the school and an ex-athletic trainer who allegedly sexually abused her while ostensibly treating her in 2022 and telling the girl, “It’s just a massage.”

The plaintiff is identified only as Jane Doe in the Van Nuys Superior Court lawsuit against the school and former trainer Richard Alexander Turner, 64, who is charged with 12 sex-related counts involving 12 girls while he worked at Birmingham High and one other high school in the San Fernando Valley. The lawsuit states that the plaintiff is one of the victims in the criminal case.

A representative for the Lake Balboa high school did not immediately reply to a request for comment on the suit filed March 10 and which alleges negligence, civil rights violations, sexual battery, battery, assault, negligent hiring, false imprisonment, intentional infliction of emotional distress and negligent supervision, retention, training and retention.
