Culpeper County High School Teacher Arrested on Solicitation Charges

Lawyer Comments: In the legal commentary section of this article, school sex abuse lawyer Kevin Biniazin adds some thoughts on the legal rights of student sex abuse victims and their families.

31-year-old former Culpeper County High School teacher Stephen Kirsch has been arrested for allegedly soliciting sex from a student. Kirsch has been charged with using a communications system for the purposes of soliciting a person under 18 with lascivious intent.

Kirsch is accused of using a social media app to ask one of his students for “sexy pictures” and for engaging in inappropriate conversations with that student. The student reported Kirsch to school administrators, and those administrators then called the police and the student’s parents.

Kirsch has been a math teacher and the head boys soccer coach at CCHS for the past six years. He has since resigned from both positions.

He is currently free on a $5,000 unsecured bond.

Can I Sue For Sexual Misconduct by a Teacher?

Attorney contributor Kevin Biniazin represents sex abuse victims and their families in civil claims. Kevin has some thoughts to add regarding the legal rights of student sexual misconduct victims and their families:

In education and other fields that involve working with children, it’s critical to make sure all employees are trustworthy. Sadly, sexual predators are often found working from positions of trust, including as teachers in our schools.

When a teacher is charged with sex crimes against students, we should ask how those crimes could have been prevented. Some teacher sex crimes only happen due to negligence by the school – such as failing to run background checks. In cases of negligence, the victims and their families may have grounds for a lawsuit.
