Legal Options of Students Sexual Assaulted by a Tutor

Attorney contributor Laurence Banville, a sexual assault lawyer, represents sexual abuse victims. He has represented numerous victims sexually abused by a tutor in civil lawsuits. In an interview, we asked Laurence to share insight into these victims’ legal options to help determine their rights.

“We have seen across the country, teachers, coaches, and tutors abuse their power and sexually abuse students. Many sexual predators use their positions of power at schools to abuse students. To ensure students’ safety and help prevent sexual assault, schools must take proper precautions and implement safety measures. Examples of safety measures are misconduct reporting systems and security cameras in classrooms, but there are more.”

“If a school does not provide ample security for their students who are being tutored, they may be considered liable in sexual misconduct cases. A school could be considered liable as a result of negligence in some cases. Examples of negligence are if inappropriate actions were caught on camera but ignored the actions or if a victim accused a tutor of sexual assault, but there was no investigation. Victims sexually abused by a tutor or at a school should know they may have grounds for a civil lawsuit and may receive compensation for damages.”
