OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - A Putnam City North High School cheerleading sponsor who was the victim of a stun-gun attack last April has sued her attacker and another woman awaiting trial in the case.
Bethany Lorenz filed the civil lawsuit against 36-year-old LeShawn Cathlene Fisher and 40-year-old Julie Ann Bell on Friday in Oklahoma County District Court.
Fisher, who is awaiting sentencing, has pleaded guilty to assaulting Lorenz with the stun gun and no contest to conspiring with Bell.
Prosecutors allege Bell, who is awaiting trial, was involved in the attack because her daughter did not make the varsity cheerleading squad.
Lorenz's attorney, Rollin Nash Jr., says that Lorenz does not intend to profit from the lawsuit. Nash says Lorenz plans to use any award to set up a scholarship fund to help needy or underprivileged students.
