Texas School Teacher Arrested For Sexually Abusing a Child

According to Fox News, a former teacher has been accused of sexually abusing a student while employed at Townsell Elementary School located at 3700 Pleasant Run Rd, Irving, TX 75038. 

Although the abuse was said to have occurred during the 2020-2021 school year, the victim did not file a report until the spring of 2022. According to the 7-year-old victim, 28-year-old Victor Moreno continuously sexually abused them at the school. 

By the time the abuse was reported, Moreno had resigned from his teaching position at Townsell Elementary School and taken up a position with the Plano Independent School District. The report indicated that Moreno failed to meet the certifications needed to continue with Townsell. However, he was fired from his new position shorting after he began due to a code of conduct violation. Police are worried that there may be additional victims.

Can I Sue If My Child Was Sexually Abused By An Elementary School Teacher?

Attorney contributor Marc Lenahan fights for justice for victims of sex abuse in the state of Texas. As an experienced school sexual abuse lawyer, Marc recently discussed the legal options available for victims sexually abused by an elementary school teacher. 

"School administration and school districts are legally and morally responsible for student safety. They have to maintain a high level of security for their students as well as staff on the campus. School districts must enforce a safety process that includes campus surveillance cameras, frequent security sweeps by resource officers, and extensive background checks for all school staff members. The school district can be held responsible if it fails to uphold its duty of care."

"Furthermore, the school is responsible for reporting any misconduct. Sadly, when elementary teacher exploits children in their care, it is often due to the lack of school security. In times when the school administration or district neglects school security, the school may be held liable. Victims sexually abused by an elementary school teacher may have grounds to file a lawsuit against the negligent school or its district. They should consult with an experienced school sexual abuse lawyer to fully explore their legal rights."
