The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office said that the 15-year-old girl was taking guitar lessons with 34-year-old Jason Troche at the Music Showcase store once a week.

Justice For Victims Sexually Abused By a Music Instructor

Attorney contributor Michael Haggard represents sex abuse victims and their families, helping them find justice through civil lawsuits in the state of Florida. During a discussion, Michael highlighted some of the legal rights available for victims sexually abused by a music instructor.

"Music studios that offer lessons to children should keep a safe environment for their students. Sexual predators who gain employment in these positions have easy access to vulnerable victims. Music studios can reduce the risk of dangers like sexual battery and assault by requiring background checks on all their employees and by installing security cameras in all lesson rooms."

"Legal rights for victims sexually abused by a music instructor can often include both criminal and civil. An investigation can lead to criminal charges when they report abuse to law enforcement. If the martial arts studio owner failed to provide sufficient security, they could be held liable. Victims and their families can learn more about their rights to file a civil lawsuit by speaking with an experienced sex abuse attorney."
