Former Dobson High JV Girls Basketball Coach Accused of Sexual Contact with Players

A former junior varsity basketball coach at Dobson High School is accused of sexual contact with players on his team.

23-year-old Kyler Ashley is charged with multiple counts of sexual conduct with a minor and sexual abuse for alleged incidents involving two 17-year-old girls. He is accused of having intercourse with one of those girls.

Ashley is also charged with luring and attempted sexual conduct with a 16-year-old girl. He was arrested on May 16 when attempting to meet with that girl for a sexual encounter. The two had been communicating over social media since September 2018.

All three alleged victims played basketball for Dobson High School. Ashley was a seasonal coach for the junior varsity team and did not work at the school in any other capacity. The school has released a statement saying that Ashley no longer works for the school.

Can Victims of Sexual Abuse by High School Coaches File Lawsuits?

Attorney contributor Kevin Biniazin helps survivors find justice through lawsuits. Here is some general information from Kevin regarding the legal options available to survivors of sexual abuse by coaches and other school employees:

In any field where adults are working with children, it’s crucial to make sure no sexual predators are hired and that preventative measures are in place to make sure the children are safe from sexual predators. This is especially true for educators and other school employees, as there are widespread reports of school faculty members abusing their students.

In some cases of sexual abuse involving school employees, the abuse may not have occurred if it weren’t for negligence by the school – such as failing to run a background check and hiring an employee with a history of sexual misconduct. When negligence is determined to have played a role in a case of sexual abuse, the victims and their families could have a case for a school sex abuse lawsuit.

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 discussing your case with an experienced sex abuse survivors lawyer.
