Substitute Teacher Arrested For Having Sex With Student

According to the Joplin Globe, a full-time substitute teacher has been accused of sex abuse while teaching at a Golden City School District school in Jasper County, Missouri. 

The 22-year-old substitute teacher filed under Jacey Bayne Stahl, also goes by Jacey Bayne (Stahl) Collins. On December 9, 2021, Stahl Collins was arrested after an investigation alleged she had been having a sexual relationship with one of the male students she taught. Evidence showed that the substitute teacher and the boy, a Jasper County resident, met at his home while his parents were away on February 24, 2021. During this visit, the two engaged in sexual intercourse. The two exchanged several text messages after the incident. Stahl Collins was said to have requested through another student that the victim destroy his phone. However, he never did, and the Southwest Missouri Cyber Crimes Task Force was able to retrieve conversations between the two. 

Stahl Collins was charged with sexual contact with a student. She posted bond and has been directed not to have contact with anyone under the age of 18 or any former students.

Filing a Lawsuit For Sexual Abuse by a Substitute Teacher

Attorney contributor Ryan Frazier represents school sex abuse victims and their families in civil lawsuits. As an experienced school sexual abuse attorney, Ryan has shared some information regarding the legal options for victims and their families to file a lawsuit for sexual abuse by a substitute teacher

"Sadly, sexual predators can gain positions of trust and power within a school district. They may pose as trustworthy teachers, coaches, and even substitute teachers. It is the school's responsibility to reduce the risk of them gaining these positions with access to vulnerable children. This can be done through extensive background checks and installing security cameras throughout the campus. If a school fails to provide these preventative security measures, they can be held liable in a civil lawsuit."

"Victims sexually abused by substitute teachers have legal rights in criminal and civil courts. It is important to report incidents for a criminal investigation. However, some school sex abuse victims may also have grounds for a civil lawsuit. In some cases, a third party could be held accountable for allowing the abuse to occur due to its negligence. If a school employee had previous incidents of misconduct, but the school did not pursue them or report them to law enforcement, they could be held responsible for further incidents."

"In cases involving negligence, such as a failure to run background checks or investigate misconduct, a civil lawsuit may be filed against the school. It is important to note that many states have a statute of limitations law that affects if a victim can file. School sexual abuse cases can often be complicated, and victims are advised to consult with an experienced school sexual abuse attorney to learn more about their legal options."
