News Release: The Trans EffectShare this story:
The transgender cheerleader accused of assaulting a teammate at a Texas junior college is back on social media mocking the victim and other cheerleaders who say they have faced retaliation in the wake of the highly publicized incident.
25-year-old Averie Satchell took to social media in the wake of an investigative report by Dolcefino Consulting detailing the vilification of the victim’s family.
“WELL WELL WELL !!! Look at KARMA,” Averie posted on Facebook. “God DOSENT [sic] like UGLY.”
After Averie was kicked out of Ranger College, she ignited a viral social media campaign denying the attack and claiming instead she had been the victim of transphobia and racism.
The family of 17-year-old Karleigh Jones says their daughter, her teammates, and their coach all faced retaliation after the July incident only because it involved a trans cheerleader and media bullying that followed. Police says Jones was choked by the trans teammate in her Ranger College dorm room during a midnight attack.
“I’m pissed off,” said dad Mike Jones. “It was three weeks before anyone from that college even with imminent threats would even make sure our kids were protected.”
“My daughter was literally the victim here and she is paying the price,” said mom Danielle Jones.
State Representative Valoree Swanson calls this another case of trans retaliation sweeping the country and says she will move to ban transgender athletes from competing in women’s sports at state funded schools and will include protections for cheerleaders and drill teams.
“They have made it where if you even speak up and say things that are obvious, like that’s a guy, that’s a woman, and women should be protected in their most private places, bathrooms, showers, hotel rooms, then we’re vilified,” Swanson told Dolcefino Consulting.
Karleigh and a handful of her teammates left Ranger College to join the cheer team at Grayson College in Denison in the days before the new school year began. Grayson coaches allegedly offered them free dorm rooms and possible scholarships.
Danielle Jones described it as a done deal. “They were told they made the team. They just had to try out for scholarships,” Danielle Jones said. “And boom, one day before they moved in, they were told they didn’t make it.”
“It is not fair for these 17, 18, and 19-year-old kids to be suffering and to be screwed out of entire year of cheering and making friends and memories,” said Nicole Turner, the former Ranger cheer coach.
Officials in Ranger clearly want the trans-attack story to go away. The school refuses to release video footage from the night of the assault. Ranger police are hiding body camera footage and basic police reports, and the town’s municipal judge won’t even tell us when the court date for the trans cheerleader is.
Dolcefino Consulting has notified the Eastland County District Attorney we want to file criminal charges for illegal withholding of public records.
