Elementary Teacher Arrested For Sexual Misconduct With Child

According to Daily Voice, a Berks teacher has been accused of having inappropriate contact with a child while teaching at Spring Ridge Elementary School located at 1211 Broadcasting Rd, Reading, PA 19610. 

On August 22, 2022, authorities received a report of ongoing sexual abuse between 24-year-old Ryan G. Blew and a minor. Blew allegedly met the victim when he was 9 or 10 years old. The two began messaging through Snapchat. Blew was said to have sent explicit photos via the social media app. The victim also claimed that he touched his genitals. Blew admitted to texting explicit photos but denied touching the child inappropriately. During the investigation, authorities found "an unknown, underage male engaged in a sexual act" on Blew's phone. 

Blew surrendered to the police on Wednesday, November 16, 2022. He is facing charges of unlawful contact with a minor, criminal use of a communication facility, sexual abuse of children, corruption of a minor, and indecent assault. He was released after posting bail. Blew taught in the district for three years, according to the school webpage. He most recently was a second-grade teacher at Spring Ridge Elementary School.

Filing School Sex Abuse Lawsuits For Victims

Attorney contributor Brian Kent has been an advocate for school sex abuse victims in Pennsylvania for years. Through his experience as a school sex crimes lawyer, he helps victims and their families file elementary school sex abuse lawsuits for compensation. 

"Elementary schools are supposed to be places where children go to learn and play. Parents expect that their children be kept safe from preventable dangers such as sexual abuse. Schools have a legal duty to implement basic security measures. There should be a procedure for reporting misconduct as well as other security measures, including cameras and security sweeps. Background checks are necessary on all teachers, coaches, and staff. If basic safety procedures have been neglected, a civil lawsuit could be brought against the school or district."

"A criminal investigation should be conducted if an elementary school teacher is arrested for crimes against a child. School sex abuse might occur if the school neglects or fails to implement sufficient safety measures. The school could be held responsible if the reports of sexual misconduct were not processed properly to prevent further abuse. School sexual abuse victims should speak with an experienced school sex crimes lawyer to learn their best course of action."
