Justice For Victims Sexually Abused by a School Employee

Attorney contributor Bobby Thompson is an experienced sexual assault lawyer who represents victims and their families in civil lawsuits. Below, Bobby has provided information regarding the legal options available for victims abused sexually by a school employee.

“Too often lately, we hear reports of predators gaining employment in schools. These predators seek positions of power and trust within schools in order to abuse their victims sexually. Parents and students alike look up to these teachers, coaches, and even school aides with a level of respect and trust. It is the responsibility of the schools to make sure their employees are fully vetted to protect their students and others that may look up to them. As a result, schools must do everything possible to limit and prevent sexual abuse from occurring. To do this, they may implement safety measures, including video monitoring cameras and patrolling security officers on the property. Additionally, schools must ensure they run thorough background checks to prevent predators from gaining positions within the schools.”

“When a school employee is arrested and charged with sexually abusing a child, it is important to look into the safety measures taken by the school. If a school fails to provide adequate safety measures, it may be held liable. If previous misconduct complaints were reported yet ignored by the school district, they could be considered negligent. Victims sexually abused by a school employee should consult with an experienced sexual assault lawyer to explore their legal options.”
