East LA Teacher Arrested On Multiple Sex Charges

Last Updated: 7/13/2020
A teacher at Esteban Torres High School has been arrested and charged with more than a dozen counts of various sex crime charges. According to authorities, 32-year-old Gina Murry sexually assaulted a 15-year-old male student over a period of two months, beginning in May of this year.

Murry has been charged with six counts of unlawful sexual intercourse and four counts each of lewd act upon a child, oral copulation of a person under 16, and sexual penetration by a foreign object. She was arrested on September 5 at the East Los Angeles sheriff’s station and released that day on $250,000 bail. She is expected to be arraigned on Wednesday, September 26.

Murry could face up to 17 years in state prison if she is convicted on all charges. The case is being investigated by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Special Victims Bureau.

A statement from the Los Angeles Unified School District said that “parents have been notified that Ms. Murry had been reassigned from the school.” However, the statement did not specify when or where Murry was reassigned.

Legal Rights of Teacher Sexual Abuse Victims

Sexual Assault Victims Attorney Mike Pfau has experience helping countless victims file teacher sex abuse lawsuits. I spoke with Mike Pfau about the legal rights that victims of sexual abuse by school employees have.

“As we have seen so many cases of sexual misconduct at schools, now more than ever schools have a duty to ensure a safe environment for students. This establishes that schools must deal with sexual assault cases swiftly and if there are allegations they must take them seriously. Unfortunately, there are incidents where school districts will transfer a teacher with complaints to another school rather than addressing the problem. In situations like this, the school or school district can be found negligent and victims can file a lawsuit for damages. ”
