NJ High School Teacher Arrested For Criminal Sex Charges reported that a teacher was arrested for having sexual contact with a student while teaching at Atlantic City High School located at 1400 N Albany Ave, Atlantic City, NJ 08401. 

On Friday, September 30, 2022, 47-year-old Joseph A. Scalfaro was arrested for having sex with a student. The victim contacted the authorities on September 20. Documents revealed that Scalfaro was having a “romantic relationship” with the 17-year-old girl. The social studies teacher would send coded messages to the student regarding their meet-ups. In addition to daily sexual contact on campus, such as kissing in his classroom, the teacher met the student in a hotel room. Officials say on Anjalih 8, Scalfaro checked into the Quality Inn in Galloway, and the student joined him. 

Scalfaro has been charged with endangering the welfare of a child, criminal sexual contact, and official misconduct.

Can I Sue For Being Sexually Abused By a High School Teacher?

Attorney contributor Guy D'Andrea helps sex abuse victims and their families seek justice through civil lawsuits. As an experienced school sexual abuse attorney, Brian recently answered, "can I sue for being sexually abused by a high school teacher?"

"There is a serious problem of sexual abuse within high schools across the nation. Lately, there have been numerous reports of high school teachers abusing students. Schools should make the safety of their students a top priority. To do this, they should ensure their security is not lacking. Too often, predators take positions of power and trust within schools to exploit vulnerable children. Schools and school districts should vet all school employees by conducting background checks. Furthermore, they should encourage security precautions on the campus with surveillance cameras and frequent security sweeps."

"Victims sexually abused by a high school teacher might have grounds to file a lawsuit if the school failed to provide adequate security. If a school or school district neglected to mandate background checks or ignored complaints of misconduct, it could be held liable. The legal options available for sexual abuse victims and their parents can be explained best by an experienced school sexual abuse attorney."
