Legal Options For Victims of Sexual Abuse by Teachers
Attorney contributor Brian Kent is an experienced sex abuse victim lawyer who has represented victims of teacher sex abuse in civil lawsuits. Brian has offered to share some of his knowledge on the legal rights of these victims:
Sexual abuse is a major crisis in our nation’s schools, as there have been reports of teachers, coaches, and other school employees abusing students throughout all 50 states. School officials must take this crisis seriously and must do everything possible to protect their students from sexual predators.
There must be a full investigation when a teacher is accused of sexually abusing a student. Along with a criminal investigation of the teacher, the school should be investigated to determine if negligence allowed the abuse to happen – such as failing to run a background check and hiring a teacher with a history of sexual misconduct.
In cases of negligence, student sex abuse victims may have grounds for a lawsuit against the school district.
