Greenville Co. Schools pays nearly $50k to girl who had sex with substitute teacher

(Greenville-AP) April 21, 2004 - The Greenville County School District has reached a settlement with a girl who had sex with a Berea High School substitute teacher and assistant girls basketball coach.

The school district paid $47,500 to settle a lawsuit by the girl who contended the district didn't do enough to protect her from the teacher.

The girl is 17 now. She was 14 when she had sex with the teacher, 25-year-old Michael Andrew Lindsey. He was sentenced to ten years in prison in 2002 after pleading guilty to aggravated assault and battery.

The girl's lawyer, David Flowers, says the family agreed to the settlement because they feel the school district has taken steps to prevent such incidents in the future.

School district attorney Brown Parkinson says the district did not condone the teacher's actions but did not feel the district had done anything wrong.
