High School Coaches Face More Victims of Sexual Abuse 

According to CBS New York, two more students have stepped forward with sexual assault accusations at the hands of coaches at Babylon High School located at 50 Railroad Ave, Babylon, NY 11702. 

After two former female students came forward with allegations of sexual assault, many more have followed. Victims spoke for six hours during a recent school board meeting, recalling the horrors they endured during their high school years. One victim, who graduated in 2017, alleged that her coach repeatedly sent her sexually suggestive texts over the course of years. Another victim who graduated in 2018 also suffered at the hands of one of the high school coaches. She alleged that he manipulated her throughout her time as a student and "tainted" her high school experience. 

Four school employees have been reassigned during the investigation, and another was put on paid administrative leave. Students and parents are asking for more actions on behalf of the Attorney General and demand the school clean house.

Lawsuits For Sexual Abuse by School Employees

Attorney contributor Laurence Banville represents school sex abuse victims and their families in civil lawsuits. Laurence has recently provided some info on the legal options available to victims and their families, including filing a lawsuit against a school for sexual abuse.

"All schools should prioritize student safety, including protection against sexual abuse. The majority of teachers, coaches, and school employees are trustworthy. However, there have been numerous cases of school employees accused of sexually abusing students. These victims and their families should be aware of their legal rights to justice."

"By filing a police report, victims can bring criminal charges against the perpetrator, but this may not be the only option. In some cases where the school has failed to provide sufficient preventative safety measures, victims may also have grounds for a lawsuit against the school. Schools should combine campus security, like cameras, along with staffing security, such as background checks. School safety negligence may involve ignoring previous reports of sexual misconduct involving the employee charged with the abuse. This failure to investigate accusations or report misconduct to law enforcement often leads to the perpetrator abusing additional victims. Victims sexually abused by a school employee are encouraged to speak with an experienced school sex abuse attorney."
