Ex-Cheer Coach Keean Davis Pleads Guilty to Multiple Sex Offenses

A former Sand Creek High School cheer coach had pleaded guilty to numerous sex offenses related to the sexual abuse of multiple students. Keean Davis pleaded guilty on April 8 to multiple counts of sexual assault on a child, attempted unlawful sexual contact, and solicitation to tamper with a witness or victim.

Davis was arrested in 2018 when three students came forward with allegations that he drugged and raped them while he was working for Sand Creek High School. He had worked in numerous positions at several school districts in El Paso County, including stints as a teacher's aide and security guard. He has worked in districts 49, 2, 8 and 11.

According to 11 News, personnel files show "two admitted theft cases; alleged lies about his credentials; and an 'alarmingly high number of incidents' of 'rubbing student's shoulders, talking to them on Snapchat, and pulling them out of class without permission.'"

Davis will be sentenced in July. His sentence could range from probation to years in prison.

Justice for Victims of Sexual Abuse by School Employees

When a school employee sexually abuses students, these victims and their families may have ways to find justice through the legal system. Attorney contributor Dan Lipman has offered to share some general info regarding the legal rights of school abuse survivors and their families:

Education and other fields that involve adults working with children are often targeted by sexual predators. It's common for predators to place themselves in positions of trust and authority where they'll have the opportunity to commit terrible crimes.

Schools must stay aware of the threat these predators pose and stay vigilant in making sure that no predators are allowed to work for them. And when students come forward with allegations of abuse or red flags are raised regarding an employee's conduct with students, the school must report the suspected abuse to authorities.

In some cases of employee-student sexual abuse, the school's negligence is partially to blame. A school might be considered negligent for a number of reasons. Some of the most common ones include:

  • Failure to run a background check which would have shown a history of sexual misconduct
  • Failure to report suspected abuse to the authorities
  • Ignoring inappropriate behavior towards students, such as frequent touching

If you or your child is a survivor of sexual abuse by a school employee, you may be able to find justice through the legal system. If school negligence played a role in the abuse, you could have grounds for a lawsuit against the school.
