Legal Options of Victims Sexually Abused by a Coach

Attorney contributor Bobby Thompson, an experienced sexual assault lawyer, represents victims sexually abused in civil lawsuits. In an interview, Bobby highlighted the legal rights of victims and their families sexually abused by a coach.

"Schools must do everything in their power to provide a safe learning environment for students; it is their legal duty. Schools should do their best to prevent predators from working with children. Across the country, many cases of school employee sexual abuse have been reported. Predators use their positions of trust to exploit students sexually. Schools and administrations must implement deterrents to protect their students (e.g., background checks and security cameras)."

"Victims and their families should acquire an experienced sexual abuse attorney's services to determine if the school provided adequate safety for their child other students. In cases where a school did not have proper safety measures implements, it might be deemed negligent by a judge. An example of negligence is if complaints of sexual misconduct were reported against a coach, but the school ignored it. In negligence cases, the victim and their family should know they may have grounds for a civil lawsuit."
