MEMPHIS, TN - (WMC-TV) – The Action News 5 Investigators have uncovered new details about a student charged with raping another student in a Memphis high school bathroom.

"It's just sick to be in a school stuff like that they should be learning," said student Trey Lanfar.

Police charged 18-year-old Craigmont High student Antonio Gillis with rape.  Investigators say it happened in the boys' bathroom at the school during school hours. Gillis is accused of forcing a 15-year-old student to perform a sex act on him. Another student was also in the bathroom.

But the circumstances are not as they appear according to Gillis' mother and according to a teacher at the school with whom we talked.

"He is very low functioning. He's moderately intellectually disabled. Antonio is not responsible for himself. Neither is the other boy," she said.

The teacher who did not want to be identified said both boys are in a class at Craigmont for mentally disabled students. She says the two boys are not supposed to go anywhere without a teacher or an assistant.

"They both are moderate retarded," she said. "It's not the fault of either one of them because they are too low functioning."

The mother of the 15-year-old victim said she hired an attorney. 

Memphis City Schools released a statement saying, "Administration immediately notified MPD when they became aware of the allegations. While MCS does not comment on the specifics of any pending litigation, it is clear that the school administration followed proper procedure in notifying the MPD of the alleged assault. We will continue to cooperate with MPD in this process."

Antonio Gillis's mother said he is behind bars. But she said he is on a special floor for people with mental disabilities.

Save A Life by Angie Kassabie

Save A Life by Angie Kassabie
I URGE ALL MY FRIENDS TO READ & SHARE THIS; YOU COULD SAVE A LOVED ONES LIFE BY KNOWING THIS SIMPLE INFORMATION!!! Stroke has a new indicator! They say if you forward this to ten people, you stand a chance of saving one life. Will you send this along? Blood Clots/Stroke - They Now Have a Fourth Indicator, the Tongue: During a BBQ, a woman stumbled and took a little fall - she assured everyone that she was fine (they offered to call paramedics) ...she said she had just tripped over a brick because of her new shoes. They got her cleaned up and got her a new plate of food. While she appeared a bit shaken up, Jane went about enjoying herself the rest of the evening. Jane's husband called later telling everyone that his wife had been taken to the hospital - (at 6:00 PM Jane passed away.) She had suffered a stroke at the BBQ. Had they known how to identify the signs of a stroke, perhaps Jane would be with us today. Some don't die. They end up in a helpless, hopeless condition instead. It only takes a minute to read this. A neurologist says that if he can get to a stroke victim within 3 hours he can totally reverse the effects of a stroke...totally. He said the trick was getting a stroke recognized, diagnosed, and then getting the patient medically cared for within 3 hours, which is tough. >>RECOGNIZING A STROKE<< Thank God for the sense to remember the '3' steps, STR. Read and Learn! Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster. The stroke victim may suffer severe brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke. Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions: S *Ask the individual to SMILE. T *Ask the person to TALK and SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently) (i.e. Chicken Soup) R *Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS. If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call emergency number immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher. New Sign of a Stroke -------- Stick out Your Tongue NOTE: Another 'sign' of a stroke is this: Ask the person to 'stick' out his tongue. If the tongue is 'crooked', if it goes to one side or the other that is also an indication of a stroke. A cardiologist says if everyone who gets this e-mail sends it to 10 people; you can bet that at least one life will be saved. I have done my part. Will you?
