Teacher’s Aide Lino Cabrera Charged with Sexually Abusing 6 Students
The Oxnard Street Elementary School teacher’s aide accused of sexually abusing at least six students appeared in court on Tuesday, June 4. 27-year-old Lino Cabrera pleaded not guilty to one count of continuous sexual abuse and five counts of lewd acts upon a child. He is being held on $850,000 bail.
The LAPD began investigating claims of abuse by Cabrera last month. The victims are six girls between ages 10 and 11. According to investigators, Cabrera abused the girls while working as a teaching assistant in the school’s computer lab. He would allegedly commit the abuse when the teacher left the room.
According to prosecutors, these incidents of abuse took place between September 2016 and May 2019. The investigation is still ongoing as the police attempt to determine if there are more victims who have not yet come forward. Other victims have been encouraged to contact the LAPD.
If convicted, Cabrera could face up to 26 years in prison.

Finding Justice For Survivors of School Employee Sexual Abuse
Attorney contributor Brian Kent of AbuseGuardian.com represents survivors of sexual abuse in civil lawsuits. Here is some general information from Brian on the legal options available to those who have been abused by school employees:
Sexual predators are often people who are in positions of trust and authority over their victims. Our sex abuse survivors lawyers have seen many cases involving school staff members sexually abusing students. These predators must be held accountable in criminal court and their victims must get the support they need. Additionally, it’s also important to determine if the school did all that they could to keep their students safe from sexual predators.
Sometimes in cases of school employee sexual abuse, the school was negligent in a way that enabled the abuse to occur. For example, a school could be considered negligent if they hired an employee who had a prior record for sexual misconduct or sexual crimes. When school negligence is found to have played a role in a case of abuse, the victims may have grounds for a lawsuit against the school.
School employee abuse cases are complex. If you or your child is a survivor of sexual abuse by a school employee, you can learn more about your family’s legal options by speaking with an experienced sex abuse survivors lawyer.
