Teacher Facing Charges For Sending Nude Photos to Student

According to Fox4KC, a Missouri School District teacher and coach has been accused of providing porn to two students at Braymer High School located at 400 Bobcat Ave, Braymer, MO 64624. 

Court records show that on Friday, March 25, 2022, 29-year-old Zachary Wayman Douglas was charged with sexual misconduct in the first degree, sexual misconduct involving a child under the age of 15, and four charges of giving or attempting to furnish pornographic material to a minor.

Allegedly Douglas, a science teacher and football and baseball coach provided nude images of himself via Snapchat to at least two students between July 2021 and March 2022. He also solicited the students to send him nude images in addition to requesting sexual acts. The students were between the ages of 14 and 17. 

Update April 1, 2022: 

Fox4KC has reported that additional charges have been brought against the former Braymer High School teacher. Since the investigation began, officials have learned of additional abuse that occurred from August 2021 to November 2021. One alleged instance took place on a school bus where Douglas touched the student inappropriately under a blanket. When they returned to the school, the student stated that the teacher called her into his office where he again began to touch her inappropriately. She said this occurred many times again in his office and classroom at the school. 

Douglas is now being charged with four counts of first-degree sexual abuse, two counts of second-degree statutory sodomy, four counts of sexual contact with a student, in addition to one count of furnishing pornographic material and one count of first-degree sexual misconduct.

Can I Sue a School For Sexual Abuse? 

Our attorney contributor Reed Martens, an experienced sexual assault attorney, represents victims of sexual assault in civil litigation in Missouri. Recently Reed shared his take on the legal rights available to victims sexually assaulted by a high school teacher or coach. Additionally, he covered when victims could sue a high school for sexual abuse.

"School administrators are required by law to provide the safest possible learning environment for their students. Schools should make every effort to maintain a safe environment on campus by putting in place sufficient levels of security. Security cameras, employee background checks, and reporting or investigating misconduct allegations are examples of these measures. Unfortunately, too many teachers have been accused and charged across the country with sexually abusing children. Schools must do everything possible to avoid recruiting predators and to limit sexual abuse, or they could be considered negligent and held liable."

"If a student is sexually assaulted by a teacher, they should seek the advice of an experienced sexual assault attorney to best understand their legal rights. Some sexual assault is the result of a third party's negligence, such as school officials. If misconduct was previously reported but ignored by school administrators, this would be an example of neglect. Victims may have adequate grounds to file a civil claim against the school in cases of school security negligence."
