Legal Recourse for Victims of Sexual Abuse by School Employees

Attorney contributor Brian Kent is a former sex crimes prosecutor who now serves as a civil attorney, helping survivors of sexual violence find justice in civil cases. We’ve asked him to share some thoughts on the legal options available to survivors of sexual abuse committed by school employees:

Our educational institutions should be safe environments where students can learn without the fear of being assaulted or abused. While this is usually the case, sometimes sexual predators are found working in our schools. When one of these employees sexually abuses students, it’s important both to prosecute the abuser and to determine if the school was also negligent in a way that allowed the abuse to happen.

For example, a school might be considered negligent for abuse if they failed to run a background check and hired an employee with a history of sexual misconduct.

In cases where negligence has played a role in enabling sexual abuse to occur, the victims and their families may have grounds for a lawsuit against the school. If you or a loved one has been sexually abused by a school employee, you can learn more about your family’s legal options by speaking to an experienced college sexual abuse lawyer.
