Karate Instructor Arrested For Having Sexual Relationship With Minor Student

According to AZ Family, a martial arts instructor is facing sex abuse charges stemming from misconduct that occurred at the Millennium Martial Arts studio located at 9800 N 91st Ave Suite 104, Peoria, AZ 85345. 

The parents of a 13-year-old boy found incriminating evidence on the boy's cell phone that included messages from 22-year-old Elsa Cristina Flores. Flores, an instructor at the karate studio, allegedly had a sexual relationship with the child she taught. According to the victim's sister, the relationship began in December 2021.

Parents stated that their son would get rides home with Flores and even tracked him to a Safeway on one occasion. Detectives managed to get a recording that included Flores admitting to having to take the "morning after pill' after the two had sex in her car at a park. Many of the text messages included pet names such as "my baby" and "babe."

Flores was arrested on May 4, 2022, and is facing charges that include six counts of sexual conduct with a minor, one count of molestation of a child, and one count of aggravated luring of a minor.

Filing Lawsuits For Victims Sexually Abused By a Karate Instructor

Attorney contributor Kevin Biniazan represents sex abuse victims and their families, helping them seek justice by filing civil lawsuits. During a recent discussion, Kevin explained when victims sexually abused by karate instructors could file a lawsuit. 

"Martial arts and karate studios are responsible for maintaining a safe environment for their students, especially when they are children. Unfortunately, sexual predators will try to gain employment within these fields as they have easy access to vulnerable victims. While most karate instructors are honorable and trustworthy, some abuse their positions of power and trust to exploit their victims." 

"Victims of sex abuse and their families have legal rights that include both criminal and sometimes civil. Reporting the abuse to law enforcement can result in an investigation that may lead to criminal charges. Additionally, these victims and families may have grounds to file a lawsuit against the martial arts studio owner if negligence allowed the abuse to occur. If the studio failed to offer safety precautions, it could be held liable. Background checks, security cameras, and a proper reporting system are all good security measures that help to reduce the risk of preventable dangers."

"If a victim is sexually abused by a karate instructor, they can learn more about their legal rights by consulting with an experienced sex abuse victim lawyer."
