Bowie High School Teacher Arrested on Sexual Abuse Charges Involving Student

Bowie High School teacher K. Sean Donovan Jr. has been arrested for allegedly sexually abusing a female student at the school. The 29-year-old is charged with sexual abuse of a minor, third-degree sex offense, and other related charges.

An investigation by the Prince George’s County Police Department began when the student told a family member that she was involved in a sexual relationship with Donovan.

This investigation discovered evidence that Donovan and the student had sexual contact on school grounds several times since May of 2019. The most recent alleged incident took place in late November.

According to the police, Donovan is not suspected of abusing any other students at this time. Anyone with information related to this case has been asked to contact the police.

Legal Options For Teacher Sex Abuse Victims and Their Families

Attorney contributor Aaron Blank represents sex crimes victims and their families directly in civil lawsuits. Aaron has offered to share some of his knowledge on the potential lawsuits for sexual abuse in school:

Schools in the United States have a major problem with teachers sexually abusing students, as there have been hundreds of cases reported throughout the country. There are many difficult concerns to address after a teacher has been arrested for sexually abusing a student. A police investigation must take place, the victim must be provided with support, and the school should also be investigated for possible negligence.

Some cases of teacher sexual abuse may have been prevented if not for school negligence. For example, a school could be considered negligent for allowing a teacher to continue working after there had been reports of sexual misconduct from students. In cases of negligence, teacher sex abuse victims and their families may have grounds for a lawsuit against the school.
