Legal Options of Victims Sexually Assaulted by a Teacher

Attorney contributor Brian Kent, an experienced sexual assault lawyer, has represented numerous victims of sexual abuse. Below, we asked Brian to share his insight on the legal rights of victims sexually abused by a teacher.

“Schools and administrations have a legal obligation to uphold the safety of their students and provide a safe learning environment. Unfortunately, across the country, we have seen numerous teacher sexual assault cases. Sexual predators often seek out positions of authority in schools to abuse their power and trust. To ensure safety and attempt to prevent sexual assault, schools should implement adequate security measures. Examples of security measures are easy misconduct reporting systems, security cameras, security guards, background checks and plenty more.”

“If a school fails to provide adequate security measures, it may be deemed liable if any sexual misconduct occurs. In such cases, schools would be considered liable due to negligence. An example of negligence is if previous misconduct was reported but ignored. Victims of teacher sexual assault and their families should secure an experienced sexual assault lawyer’s services to determine if their case involves negligence. In negligence cases, the victim and their family would have grounds for a civil lawsuit against the school.”
