Commentary From Lawyer For Students Sexually Abused by Teachers

Bobby Thompson is a sexual assault attorney who has represented victims of sexual abuse by teachers, coaches, and other school employees. Bobby has offered to share his advice on whether a victim has grounds for legal action against the school in a sexual assault case.

“Sexual predators are often found in jobs where they can get close to children without being too conspicuous. This attracts many of them to the teaching profession and is a reason that schools must always be on the watch for predators. Whenever a school employee has been charged with sexual abuse it is important to determine whether the school acted negligently in its handling of the situation. If the school did not properly investigate or was aware of the abuse and did nothing then they can be found negligent and can be held liable in court.”
