(KNX 1070) - Days after a former Industry middle school janitor was sentenced to 14 years in prison for molesting young girls, the parents are suing the school district for negligence Thursday.

The families of students, who were sexually abused by a former janitor in the city of Industry, are suing the district.

They claim administrators at Bassett Unified School District were negligent in their supervision and hiring practices.

The janitor,  who worked at Torch Middle School,  has been sentenced to 14 years in prison. Michael Anthony Barry was sentenced earlier this week.
