Justice for Victims of High School Sex Abuse

Attorney contributor Brian Kent helps sex abuse victims and their families file school sex abuse lawsuits in New Jersey. Brian recently highlighted how victims sexually abused by a high school teacher could seek justice.

"Sexual abuse has become a serious problem in high schools across the country. Lately, there have been numerous reports of teachers sexually abusing students. This puts pressure on the school districts to explore all possible precautions in order to protect their students. It is the legal responsibility of the schools to prevent all forms of sex abuse on their campus. If a predator is able to become a teacher or coach, they can easily abuse the trust and power that come with the position. Schools must ensure they implement a security plan to lower the risks."

"Basic high school security could include conducting mandatory background checks, to reduce the risk of abusers being employed. Frequent security sweeps and following up on any complaints of misconduct could further decrease the risk of sexual misconduct. Victims sexually abused by a high school teacher may have grounds to file a lawsuit if a school failed to provide adequate security. The legal options for victims and their parents should be explored by consulting with an experienced school sex abuse attorney."
