California Elementary School Janitor Arrested For Sex Abuse

According to Fox 26 News, the Fresno County Sheriff’s Sex Crimes Unit has arrested 55-year-old Alejandro Garcia of Selma in connection with multiple charges of lewd and lascivious acts with a child under 14 years old.

Garcia, who was working as a janitor at Del Rey Elementary School located at 10620 Morro Ave, Del Rey, CA 93616, was taken into custody after detectives responded to a report of a child who may have been subjected to sexual abuse at the school.

The girl's parents told police that their daughter had informed them of inappropriate behavior with her by Garcia. After gathering information, detectives arrested Garcia and booked him into the Fresno County Jail with a bail set at $120,000.

The Fresno County Sheriff’s Office is warning the public that due to the nature of this investigation, there may be additional victims who have not reported similar incidents involving Garcia. Anyone with information regarding the case is encouraged to contact the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office.

Compensation For Victims Sexually Assaulted By an Elementary School Employee

Attorney contributor Mike Pfau is an experienced school sexual abuse attorney representing victims in California. Bobby recently shared legal options available to victims sexually assaulted by an elementary school janitor.

"Parents trust that their young children are provided a safe environment to learn and develop socially. Unfortunately, we hear too many reports lately of abuse happening on elementary school campuses. Schools should be aware of their legal obligations and take proactive steps to ensure that any form of abuse, including sexual abuse, is prevented and reported in a timely manner. School districts should enforce background checks on all school employees to avoid hiring known offenders. If a school fails to uphold their duty, they could be held liable for abuse that occurs."

"It is important that victims and their families are aware of their legal rights. By speaking with an experienced sex abuse attorney, they will get the appropriate support and assistance throughout the process. Victims and their families may be entitled to compensation for any physical or emotional harm they have suffered due to the abuse. Victims may also be able to seek punitive damages or other forms of justice, such as the right to have their abuser prosecuted. It is imperative that they do not wait to seek justice due to statute of limitations."
