Teacher at Goldwater High School, Aude Odeh, Charged with Sexual Conduct

According to 12 News, a current Deer Valley Unified School District teacher, Aude Odeh, has been charged with sexual conduct with a minor.

Odeh, 35-years-old, was a former teacher at Barry Goldwater High School. Odeh allegedly attempted to have a sexual interaction with a 17-year-old student. The victim came forward as dozens of girls and young women claim that Odeh sent them inappropriate messages.

The victim reported that Odeh attempted to have sex with her while she was at her father's home in 2015. She also said that Odeh sent provocative messages on social media for about a year prior to this incident.

Another girl that was enrolled around the same time reported that she had interactions with Odeh that made her uncomfortable. Over the years, many complaints of Odeh sending inappropriate messages have been reported.

Legal Options of Victims Sexually Assaulted by a Teacher

Attorney contributor Kevin Biniazan, an experienced sexual assault attorney, represents victims of sexual abuse. Below, Kevin provides commentary on the legal rights of victims sexually assaulted by a teacher.

"Schools have a legal obligation to provide a safe learning environment for the students that attend. Unfortunately, there have been many sexual assault cases against teachers across the country. These predators are using their positions of trust and power at schools to exploit children. To ensure the safety of students, schools must implement security measures, such as background checks, cameras, and easy reporting systems."

"First, victims and their parents should secure the services of an experienced sexual assault attorney to learn more about their legal options. When a school fails to provide ample security measures and abuse occurs, it may be considered liable due to negligence. An example of negligence is if misconduct complaints were made previously but not properly investigated. Often, when sexual assault occurs by a school staff member, it is the result of negligence by a third party, such as a school's administration. In negligence cases, victims and their families may have grounds for a civil lawsuit."
