Former Emporia High School Teacher Charged With 8 Sex Crimes

Former Emporia High School social studies teacher, Tyler Bosiljevac, has been charged with sexual battery and sexual relations with six former Emporia High students.

Bosiljevas was arrested in late May on eight charges as stated on These charges include: two counts of Attempted Unlawful Voluntary Sexual Relations with a child under the age of 16, Sexual battery on a child over the age of 16 with the intent to satisfy sexual desires and arouse, Attempted Sexual Exploitation of a Child between the ages of 14-16, and three counts of Indecent Liberties with a Child between the ages of 14-16 in which Bosiljevas allegedly engaged in fondling and touching of the students.

After a student in February made accusations to an EHS staff member, the staff member reported these accusations to the Emporia Police Department, which began the initial investigations. Bosiljevac's teaching contract was terminated later that month by the Board of Education for violating several board policies regarding sexual harassment, failing to maintain a "positive and safe learning environment," and failing to "demonstrate professional judgment." Prior to his termination, Bosiljevas worked with the district for more than 14 years.

Legal Options For Student Victims Sex Abuse Victims and Their Families by Teacher

Attorney contributor Reed Martens, represents victims of sexual abuse and their families in civil lawsuits. Martens provides insight to students and their families on the legal rights of students sexually abused by teachers.

There is a legal duty for school officials and administrators to ensure the safety of their students. Protecting students from sexual assault and sexual predators must be enforced as a part of a school's safety plan. Unfortunately, sexual predators sometimes work in schools as coaches, teachers, administration, and other positions. When a teacher is charged with sexual abuse of students, victims and their families should be aware of their legal rights and ask if the school did enough to prevent the possible abuse.

In some cases, sexual abuse by a teacher or coach is preventable. A school could be considered negligible for ignoring previous complaints of misconduct by the arrested teacher. In school negligence cases, student sex abuse victims and their families may have grounds for legal action.

If you or a loved one has been sexually abused by a teacher or school employee, you can learn more about your legal options through a free consultation by contacting our experienced sex abuse victim lawyers.
