Liberty Hill High School Teacher Charged for Sexually Assaulting a Student

According to KVUE ABC, a Liberty Hill High School teacher has been arrested and charged after the alleged sexual assault of a student.

Brian Grady Miller, a computer science and robotics teacher, has been charged with two counts of sexual assault of a child and one count of an improper relationship between an educator and student. Both charges are second-degree felonies.

According to the affidavit, the alleged victim, a former student 16-years-old, said she had sex with Miller in his classroom, at her house, at his home, and in a car.

Legal Options of Victims Sexually Abused by a School Employee

Attorney contributor Marc Lenahan has worked with numerous sexual abuse cases and helped them get justice in civil lawsuits. Below we asked Marc to share his thoughts on the legal rights of a victim that a teacher had sexually assaulted.

"We have seen numerous sexual assault cases at schools across the country. Unfortunately, predators place themselves in positions of power to work with students. To ensure the safety of students, schools have a legal duty to provide a safe learning environment. Predators often use their positions of trust to exploit their students. Schools must implement adequate safety measures to ensure their students' safety, such as mandatory background checks and easy misconduct reporting systems. If schools do not implement such measures, they may be considered liable for misconduct that occurs."

"Victims should ask if the school had safety measures in place and protected them to the best of its ability. If there were inadequate safety measures, the school might be deemed negligent in any assaults or misconduct that occurs on their grounds or by an employee. One example of negligence is if misconduct was seen on a camera, but the interaction was ignored. Another example of negligence is if a teacher was reported for sexual misconduct, but the complaints were ignored. In such cases, victims should know they may have grounds for a civil lawsuit."
