Justice for School Sex Abuse Victims 

Attorney contributor Brian Kent is a former sex-crimes prosecutor who now represents sex abuse victims and their families in civil lawsuits. As a high school sexual abuse attorney, Brian shared his thoughts regarding the legal rights of school sex abuse victims and their families

"Too often, we hear of reports where sexual predators gain positions of power and trust within schools and academies. Knowing of these dangers, it is more important than ever for school administration and school districts to do everything they can to reduce the risks of abuse on their campuses. This may include screening each school employee with background checks, installing high-tech security cameras throughout the campus, and following up on all reports of misconduct. If a school fails to implement a strict security protocol, they can be held liable for their neglect if a student falls prey to abuse."

"In the event of school sex abuse, it is necessary to report predators to law enforcement, so they can face criminal charges for the harm they've caused. However, victims may also have grounds for a lawsuit against the school in cases of negligence. If a school was aware of previous misconduct, they could be held accountable for failing to prevent further abuse."

"Victims sexually abused by teachers or other school employees should know they have legal options. By speaking with an experienced school sexual abuse attorney, they can get the compassionate legal guidance they need to present a case against the perpetrator and the negligent school."
