Police Investigation Into Suspected Inappropriate Relationship Between Teacher & Student at Lafayette Jefferson

The Lafayette Police Department is currently investigating a report of alleged inappropriate relationships between a Lafayette Jefferson High School teacher and multiple students.

According to Lafayette Police Sergeant Mike Brown, this investigation is based on a report that a male teacher was involved in an inappropriate relationship with three female students – two who are 16 years old and one who is 17 years old.

The Lafayette School Corporation is aware of the investigation and has cooperated with police, according to Superintendent Les Huddle. Huddle also says that the district reported the suspected misconduct to the police. The teacher is on sick leave and not currently teaching at the school.

This currently is still developing and few other details have been released. No charges have been filed as of December 10 and the teacher’s name has not been publicly released.

Legal Options For Teacher Sex Abuse Victims and Their Families

Attorney contributor Jeff Gibson is proud to stand by sex abuse victims and their families in their fights for justice. Jeff has represented numerous victims and families in sex abuse lawsuits against predators and negligent third parties. Here are some of his thoughts regarding the legal rights of victims of sexual assault at school and their families:

Teachers are trusted to be positive influences in the lives of their students. While most teachers live up to this expectation, not all teachers are trustworthy. Tragically, sexual predators are often found working as teachers and in other positions of trust. Our schools must do everything they can to make sure their students are safe from the threat of sexual abuse by employees.

When a teacher is reported for sexual abuse or sexual misconduct involving students, the allegations must be taken seriously and investigated. Along with a criminal investigation of the accused teacher, the school should also be investigated for potential negligence. Some cases of sex abuse by teachers could have been prevented if not for negligence – such as ignoring previous complaints of inappropriate behavior involving the accused teacher.

If you or your child is a victim of sexual abuse by a teacher or another school employee, our experienced sexual abuse victims lawyers understand the difficulties facing your family. We want to help. You can learn more about your family’s legal options by contacting us for a free consultation.
