How To Seek Justice For School Sex Abuse?

Attorney contributor Michael Haggard represents students sexually assaulted by high school teachers in the state of Florida. As an experienced school sexual abuse lawyer, Michael helps abuse victims file civil lawsuits for compensation. He recently discussed the legal options available for victims sexted by a teacher. 

"Sexual misconduct can take various forms but can include anything sexual that makes a victim feel uneasy. Sending and requesting sexual text messages is just one example. Many people are unaware that sexting or sending sexually explicit electronic messages to minors or students is illegal. Too often, we see reports of messages being sent via text, Facebook, or Snapchat."

"Sexual predators frequently aim to attain positions of trust and power, including positions as teachers or coaches within a private Christian school. School districts and administrations are legally obligated to safeguard their pupils from preventable threats that include sexual misconduct and abuse. A school can lessen the likelihood of pupils becoming victims of these horrible crimes by conducting frequent background checks, deploying security monitoring systems, and utilizing reporting procedures."

"If a school fails to implement a preventative safety plan, they can be held liable. Victims may have the legal right to file in both criminal and civil courts. In the circumstances involving the school's negligence, such as the failure to conduct background checks, civil lawsuits may be filed. State statute of limitations might also affect a victim's ability to file a lawsuit. Due to this, victims should discuss their potential case with an experienced school sexual abuse lawyer."
