Hamlin Middle School Teacher Charged with Sexual Assault of a Child

A Hamlin Middle School teacher has been charged with sexually assaulting a student. Corpus Christi Independent School District Police have issued a warrant for the arrest of 47-year-old Anthony Quintanilla.

Quintanilla surrendered on Wednesday, October 16 before the warrant was served. He has been charged with sexual assault of a child and improper relationship between an educator and student. A $300,000 bond has been set.

Quintanilla appeared in court on Thursday, October 17. Along with the $300,000 bond, 105th District Court Judge Pulcher ordered Quintanilla to avoid all contact with the victim, the victim's family, and anyone else under the age of 17. He is also prohibited from using social media and will have limited and monitored internet use.

Due to the fact that this investigation remains ongoing, no further details regarding Quintanilla's arrest have been released.

Legal Recourse For Teacher Sex Abuse Victims & Their Families

Attorney contributor Anjali Nigam represents sexual abuse victims in civil lawsuits. Anjali has offered to share a few of his thoughts on the legal rights of teacher sex abuse victims and their families:

Teachers and other school staff members work from positions of trust, so it's crucial that our schools make sure all of their staff members are trustworthy people. Sadly, our nation's schools have major problems with teachers and other employees sexually abusing students. Preventative measures must be in place to protect students from these sexual predators who often seek out positions in education and other fields that involve working from positions of trust.

When allegations of sexual abuse are raised against a teacher, the accused is not the only party that should be investigated. It's also important to determine if the school failed in its legal duty to protect its students. Some cases of teacher sex abuse only occur due to negligence by the school - such as failing to run background checks before hiring new employees.

In cases where school negligence allowed sexual abuse to occur, the victims and their families may have grounds for a lawsuit against the school district.
