Former Teacher, Coach at Warren Central High School Accused of Sex Abuse

Former Warren Central High School teacher and softball coach Brittany Mang has been accused of inappropriate sexual behavior with a 15-year-old student. Mang was charged on Thursday, May 24 with two counts of sexual misconduct with a minor and child solicitation.

Mang taught Spanish and coached softball at the school. She resigned from both of these positions on May 3.

The student’s mother filed a report with the Department of Child Services after finding “oddly intimate” text messages between Mang and her 15-year-old daughter. The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department was notified of this report and began their investigation.

Police interviewed the girl and she told officers that Mang had been her Spanish teacher and junior varsity softball coach. The two first met in January, but the relationship reportedly changed in April. The girl’s mother told police that she had allowed her daughter to stay overnight at Mang’s home, which is when the relationship allegedly turned physical with touching and kissing.

Legal Options For Victims of Sexual Abuse by Teachers and Coaches

Attorney contributor Jeff Gibson of the Indiana law firm Wagner Reese represents survivors of sexual abuse in civil lawsuits. Here are a few thoughts from Jeff on the legal options available to students sexually abused by coaches, teachers, and other school staff members:

Our schools have an obligation to do everything in their power to keep their students safe from the threat of sexual predators. This obligation applies to any field that involves adults working with kids, as these fields are often targeted by sexual predators. When a school employee sexually abuses a student, it’s important to determine if the school failed to meet this legal obligation to protect their students from sexual predators.

In some cases of sexual abuse by school employees, school negligence is partially to blame for the abuse. For example, a school might be considered negligent if they had failed to report allegations of misconduct by a teacher to the authorities.

If you or a loved one has been sexually abused by a teacher or coach, your family has legal rights. You can learn more about your legal options by contacting one of our experienced sex abuse survivors lawyers for a free consultation.
