3 New Sexual Abuse Allegations Against Teacher Randall Carter

A former Kansas City-area charter school teacher who is already facing five charges related to child sexual abuse is now facing three more allegations, including rape of a child less than 14 years old, aggravated indecent liberties, and criminal sodomy with a teenager.

Carter was a teacher at three area charter schools - Lee A. Tolbert Academy, Pathway Academy, and University Academy. He allegedly met his victims while teaching at these schools.

These new charges were filed on November 30. Carter was initially arrested in May on charges of rape of a child less than 14 years old, two counts of aggravated indecent liberties, and two counts of aggravated criminal sodomy. According to court documents, there have been three separate victims.

Carter is being held on a $500,000 bond. He has a jury trial scheduled for next February.

Legal Recourse For Families of School Sexual Abuse Victims

Reed Martens helps victims of sexual assault find justice in civil lawsuits. We have asked him to add some info on the legal options available to those who have been sexually abused by teachers and other school staff members:

Teacher-student sexual abuse traumatizes victims, their families, and the community at large. When a teacher is found to be a sexual predator, it's crucial to make sure that all victims and other community members get the support they need, that the perpetrator is arrested and prosecuted, and that the school is also held accountable if their negligence played a role in allowing the abuse to occur.

In some cases of sexual abuse involving school employees, the school was negligent in a way that contributed to the abuse - such as failing to report previous allegations of sexual misconduct to law enforcement or failing to run a background check before hiring an employee with a history of sexual misconduct. In cases which involve negligence, the victims and their families may have grounds for a lawsuit against the school.

If you or a loved one has been sexually abused by a teacher or school staff member, we understand the difficulties you face. To learn more about your family's legal options, consider speaking to an experienced sexual abuse victims attorney.
