The family of a Westlake High School senior who was suspended is angry and talking Only to KCAL9 about their ordeal.
Dominic Conti, 17, was suspended from school for five days following an incident at a football game last October 11. He reportedly confronted — and got into an altercation — with a football player he accused of sexually harassing his 15-year-old sister, a freshman at the school.
Conti, until his suspension, was also the school’s senior class president. That position was taken away after his suspension.
KCAL9′s Rachel Kim spoke to Conti, his sister and their father.
Friends and Conti supporters accuse Westlake High Principal Ron Lipari of coming down hard on Conti and protecting the school’s football program.
The Contis insist they went to school administration to complain about the football player but say nothing was done.
