Filing Lawsuits For Teachers Sexting Students

Attorney contributor Bobby Thompson represents students sexually assaulted by teachers in the state of California. As an experienced school sexual abuse attorney, Bobby helps abuse victims file civil lawsuits. He recently discussed the legal options available to victims sexted by a teacher

"Sexual acts come in many forms but may include anything sexual in nature that makes a victim feel uncomfortable. This can involve sending and requesting sexual content in a text message. Many may not realize that sexting or sending electronic messages sexual in nature to minors is an offense. Whether the messages are made through a text, Facebook, or Snapchat, criminal laws forbid them if the recipient is a minor."

"Sexual predators will often try to gain positions of trust and power within a school as a teacher or coach. Many are aware of the widespread reports of school employees sexually assaulting students across the country. It is the legal responsibility of the school districts to protect their students from these dangers. By conducting periodic background checks, installing security monitoring systems, and utilizing reporting systems, a school can reduce students' chances of suffering these heinous crimes. 

"These victims have legal rights in both criminal and civil courts. In addition to reporting a teacher for a criminal investigation, some victims may have grounds to file a lawsuit. Lawsuits can be filed in cases involving negligence, such as a failure to run background checks. Additionally, state laws like the statute of limitations can affect a victim's chance of filing a lawsuit. These cases may be complicated, and it's best to consult with an experienced school sexual abuse attorney to learn more about the available options for seeking justice."
