East Aurora School District 131 Bilingual Teacher Charged with Sex Abuse

A first-grade bilingual teacher at Dieterich Elementary School was arrested and charged with sexually abusing two 8-year-old students on June 5. 58-year-old Luis R. Mora is charged with two felony counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse. The alleged abuse is said to have occurred between August 2018 and May 2019.

On Wednesday, school officials released a statement that stated that officials "immediately contacted" the Department of Children and Family Services on April 24 after being notified of "alleged inappropriate behavior" involving a staff member and student. The DCFS then contacted law enforcement and the investigation was turned over to the Kane County Child Advocacy Center and the Aurora Police Department.

Mora's bail was set at $75,000 he was released after posting $7,500. He is prohibited from contacting the victims or having unsupervised contact with anyone younger than 14. He also had to surrender his passport to the Kane County sheriff's office.

His next court date is scheduled for June 19. If convicted, he could face 7 years in prison.

This investigation is ongoing. Anyone with related information or who believes that their child was a victim has been encouraged to call the Kane County Child Advocacy Center at (630) 208-5160.

Justice For Families Affected by Sexual Abuse in Schools

Attorney Guy D'Andrea represents survivors of sexual abuse in civil lawsuits. Here is some general information on how school sex abuse victims and their families can find justice:

Every school has a duty to prioritize the safety of their students above all else. In any field that involves working with children, it's crucial to make sure that only trustworthy people are hired. Sadly, these fields are often targeted by sexual predators who seek to exploit their positions of trust in order to commit terrible crimes.

Sexual abuse in schools has become a nationwide problem, with cases of school staff abusing students in all 50 states. When a student comes forward to disclose abuse, the allegations must be taken seriously and investigated. Along with prosecuting the abuser, it's also important to look at the school and determine if they failed to do all that they could to protect their students. In some cases, the abuse may have been prevented if not for school district negligence.

For example, a school district might be considered negligent if they hired an employee without running a background check or ignored previous complaints of inappropriate behavior by a staff member.

If your child is a victim of sexual abuse by a school staff member, your family has legal options for finding justice. You can learn more by discussing your case with an experienced sex abuse victims attorney.
