Dallas ISD sued for allowing 25-year-old man to enroll in school

The Dallas Independent School District is facing a lawsuit for allowing a grown man posing as a teenager to enroll in high school.

While reliving his glory days, Sidney Gilstrap-Portley allegedly molested another student.

It happened three years ago at Skyline and then later Hillcrest High School. Gilstrap-Portley was 25 years old at the time but said he was 17.

The lawsuit claims Dallas ISD failed to protect the teenage girl who was sexually assaulted by Gilstrap-Portley.

He was sentenced to six years of probation last year for the crime.
