ELK GROVE-

A Franklin High School sophomore says she was drugged and sexually assaulted, with the alleged attack captured on video.

The girl had gone to Morse Park in Elk Grove to drink with friends Saturday, something both she and her mother say was the wrong decision.

“In the video, it shows I’m unconscious and that they prop me up,” the girl said. “It shows them forcing me to do stuff.”

She admitted to FOX40 that she put herself in that situation, but that she also trusted that group of people. The girl didn’t know what had happened until the following Tuesday at school, when word of a video of that night was spreading.

Another student FOX40 spoke with, under the condition of anonymity, said the girl knew what she was doing.

But the girl’s mother, who also declined to be identified, says the video tells the whole story.

“Yes, she obviously did a really stupid thing, sneaking off at night time. That was stupid,” she said. “To be assaulted, to be taken in a car where there is someone missing, there’s something wrong.”

The Elk Grove Police Department says they take sexual assault claims seriously, and that the video will play a big role in the investigation.

The Elk Grove Unified School District, however, declined to comment.
