The News and Tribune reports it also accuses the school district of negligence for allegedly failing to protect her at school.

District spokeswoman Erin Bojorquez declined comment Friday, saying the district hasn't received the suit.

Begin is being held on 24 molestation charges involving 17 children ranging in age from 3 to 7. He allegedly assaulted them while working at a YMCA and as an elementary school teaching assistant.
