Court documents obtained by News 5 show former school principals Phillip Henley and Kimberly Hooker along with the county's school board and current jail inmate Bobby Gobble, 40, are named in the suit filed by a friend representing one of four children that police said was sexually abused by Gobble.
The suit contends that school administrators and teachers allowed Gobble to have unrestricted and unsupervised access to the four students beginning in 2011; one of which was a child who had to attend Lebanon due to his specific learning disability.
The attorney for the juvenile says the victim is seeking $10 million in damages, the documents say.
The documents said that the victim was subjected to over two years of sexual abuse inside and outside the school, including in the janitor's office and when the boy moved in with Gobble. Police also concluded that Gobble used a school computer in his office to transmit and store digital images of the victims being sexually abused, the information says.
The suit is also accusing the school system of not giving faculty and staff proper training to recognize child abuse and reporting it.
Gobble was sentenced to 70 years in prison in August 2014 after accepting a plea agreement with state prosecutors on 48 counts of aggravated sexual battery and nine counts of forcible sodomy against the juvenile named in the civil suit.
The other 75 counts of aggravated sexual battery and carnal knowledge involved the other victims.
