LAPD Detectives Investigating Oxnard Street Elementary Employee Sex Abuse Allegations

Last Updated: 7/13/2020
Detectives with the Los Angeles Police Department are investigating allegations of sexual abuse by an employee of Oxnard Street Elementary School in North Hollywood. Several girls have come forward concerning alleged sex abuse by a teacher’s assistant at the school.

No criminal charges have been filed as of May 17, so that employee’s name has not been released. Detectives visited the school on May 16 to interview students and parents in order to determine if any abuse occurred.

Principal Kenny Yau released a letter to parents this week announcing that the teacher’s assistant is no longer working at the school. He has been reassigned from campus while the LAPD investigation is ongoing.

According to a story by KTLA, one parent said that the principal called her and told her that her daughter and seven other female students had been inappropriately touched by the employee.

Legal Recourse For School Sex Abuse Victims and Their Families

Mike Pfau is a frequent attorney contributor to The Legal Herald on sexual abuse cases. He has experience in representing numerous victims of elementary school teacher sexual abuse. We interviewed Bobby about the legal options that are available to victims:

“Jobs that carry a lot of authority and trust like teaching often attract sexual predators. Predators see this as an ideal job to carry out their misdeeds while not being noticed. It is a school’s job to combat this troubling trend and to ensure a safe environment for students. Options for this include conducting thorough background checks and having an anonymous tip system. Sometimes, schools may be found negligent if they do not have adequate resources dedicated to stopping sexual abuse on campus. In these situations, victims can file a civil lawsuit against the school in an attempt to recover damages.”
