Lawsuit: CA student recruited to help in drug bust

TEMECULA, Calif. (AP) — The mother of a California middle school student has sued the school district, claiming her 14-year-old son was used as bait during an on-campus drug sting.

The Riverside Press Enterprise reports ( Wednesday the suit was filed earlier this month against the Temecula Valley Unified High School District. The paper did not name the student or his parents because they fear for their son's safety.

The lawsuit says the incident took place last December when an assistant principal allegedly arranged to have her son help catch a fellow student suspected of selling marijuana on campus. Despite the mother's objections, the drug sting occurred.

The suit accuses school officials of recklessness and child endangerment.

A school district spokeswoman declined comment.
