Germain was placed on administrative leave following the allegations and is no longer employed by the school district. The district has three elementary schools: Boulevard, Park Terrace, and Kingsborough.

Legal Options for Victims of Sexual Abuse by School Employees

Attorney contributor Laurence Banville represents survivors of sexual assault in civil lawsuits. As a lawyer for students sexually abused at school, we’ve asked him to discuss the legal options available to those who have been sexually abused by school employees:

Sexual predators often place themselves in positions of trust and seek out vulnerable victims. This is why it’s crucial for our schools to take preventative measures in order to make sure their students are safe and no sexual predators are allowed to work or volunteer with the school. When allegations of sexual abuse do arise, these schools need to take them seriously and contact the authorities immediately.

In some cases of school employee sexual abuse, the school district bears part of the blame for failing to prevent the abuse through some form of negligence. Negligence can come in many forms, from failing to run a background check before hiring a new employee to attempts to cover up reports of sexual assault by an employee. In cases that involve school district negligence, the victims and their families may have grounds to file a lawsuit.

If you or your child is a survivor of sexual abuse by a school employee, you can find justice for the trauma your family has suffered. Consider contacting an experienced sex abuse survivors attorney to learn more about your legal options.
