In the Courts: Parents of child allegedly raped by elementary teacher file suit

Local

The parents of the young child who was allegedly sexually assaulted by a Bossier Parish elementary school teacher on the school campus where he taught on Thursday filed a civil lawsuit against the Bossier Parish School Board and the teacher.

Aubrey “Perry” Norcross, 47, charged with 1st degree rape and video voyeurism, is currently being held on a $900,000 bond at Bossier Maximum Security facility.

Norcross is a physical education teacher and served as coach of Benton Elementary’s championship archery team.

The lawsuit, which is filed in the parents’ names, as well as on behalf of their child, does not ask for a specific amount of money, but instead asks for “all harms and losses caused by the defendants be repaired by judgment.

The Bossier Parish School Board sent out the following statement regarding the lawsuit: “The district’s attorney is aware of the lawsuit and all inquiries should be referred to him. Bossier Schools cannot comment on pending litigation.”
