Ian Gray, Former Teacher at Fall Creek Intermediate, Charged for Child Molestation

According to the IndyStar, a former hamilton Southeastern Schools district teacher has been accused of sexual abuse. 

Ian Gray, 38-years-old, worked at Fall Creek Intermediate School at the time of the allegations. According to court documents, Gray allegedly touched a sixth-grade student inappropriately at least 10 times during the school year of 2017-2018.  

The victim reported that Gray would send her to a room for punishment that was small, and the door would be closed and at least once the windows were covered. Gray would allegedly sit next to her and touch her skin above and below her clothes. The victim reported Gray would talk to her while touching her as a distraction. 

The victim's mother allegedly called the school counselor and reported the abuse and was told the principal at the time, Randy Schoeef, would contact her. The principal told police the mother contacted him about a problem with Gray but did not suspect abuse was occurring. Following this, Gray was transferred in the fall of 2018 to Riverside Junior High School after requesting a transfer, reported the IndyStar. 

Gray turned himself in and is booked at Hamilton County Jail and has been charged with two counts of child molestation.

Legal Options of Victims Sexually Abused by a Teacher

Attorney contributor Jeff Gibson, an experienced sexual abuse lawyer, represents victims abused sexually by teachers. Below, Jeff provides insight into the legal options of victims of sexual abuse and their families.

"Schools have a legal obligation to provide a safe learning environment for students and do their best to ensure their safety. Unfortunately, across the country, there have been numerous cases of teacher sexual abuse. When parents send their children to school they are trusting the staff and administration to care for their children and uphold their safety. Schools should implement security measures such as cameras, reporting systems, and guards to ensure the safety of students."

"When a victim is sexually abused by a teacher the victim and their family should question if the school did everything possible to prevent the abuse from occurring. Often, sexual abuse at schools occurs due to the negligence of a third party, such as the administration. An example of negligence is if abuse was reported but ignored or not properly investigated. Victims should secure the services of an experienced sexual abuse lawyer to determine all their legal options. In cases of negligence, victims and their families should know they may have grounds for a civil lawsuit against the school and receive compensation for damages.
