Teen Claims Abuse at Christian Academy
LAS VEGAS (CN) - A Mexican teenager's brief stint in a Nevada boarding school was marked by plates full of cigarette butts and other abuse, the student and his mother claim in court.
"At times, Mr. Vaca would only have an apple or other small piece of fruit to eat for many days at a time because the food was so bad."
Nevada suspended Sky View Academy's license Sept. 28, 2007, according to the complaint.
