Former Fayette County Public School System Bus Monitor Charged with Sexual Abuse

A former 18-year-old substitute bus monitor with the Fayette County Public School system has been arrested for allegedly sexually abusing a 16-year-old student on one of the district’s buses.

Brandon Brown was charged on Thursday, January 16, with sexual abuse for an alleged incident from November 12, 2019. An arrest citation says that Brown and the student touched each other’s private areas “while on the school bus he monitored.”

The citation also states that Brown was in a position of authority and that he “came into contact with the victim as a result of that position.”

Brown’s employment with the Fayette County Public School system was terminated after the district was notified of the alleged sexual abuse, according to a spokesperson for the district.

Justice For School Employee Sex Abuse Victims and Their Families

Attorney contributor Brian Kent of AbuseGuardian.com is a former sex crimes prosecutor and current sex abuse victims lawyer who helps victims and their families find justice in civil lawsuits. Brian has offered to share some insight into the legal rights of school employee sex abuse victims and their families:

In education and other fields where adults work with children, preventative measures must be in place in order to protect the children from sexual predators. These measures are unfortunately necessary due to the fact that child predators often seek out trusted positions in our schools, where they exploit this trust and commit heinous crimes against children.

Our sex abuse victims lawyers have seen far too many cases of school employees sexually abusing students. When this happens, the accused employee should be subject to a criminal investigation. Additionally, the school district should be investigated for possible negligence. Some of these cases are preventable and only happen because of school negligence, such as failing to run background checks before hiring new employees.

When an investigation reveals school negligence, the victim and their family may have grounds for a lawsuit against the school.

If you or your child is a survivor of sexual abuse by a school employee, our lawyers want to help your family find justice. You can learn more about your family’s legal options by contacting us for a free consultation.
