Lawyer Comments: Attorney Bobby Thompson handles cases involving sexual abuse by school employees. In the second part of this story, Bobby discusses the legal rights of student sex abuse victims and their families.
A teacher at Kucera Middle School in Rialto was arrested on February 18 for allegedly sexually abusing a student from the school. 31-year-old Brian Servin faces a charge of lewd and lascivious acts with a child under 14 years old.
Servin’s arrest was a result of a joint investigation by police and the Rialto Unified School District. Police obtained sufficient evidence through several search warrants, the department said in a statement.
Servin started working for the school district in August 2016. He was placed on administrative leave in March 2019 after the district received several reports of inappropriate conduct with a student.
He was arrested at his home on the 4000 block of Camelia Court and booked at the West Valley Detention Center.
School sexual assault lawyer, Bobby Thompson represents student sex abuse victims and their parents in civil lawsuits against predatory school employees and negligent schools. Bobby has offered to share some of his knowledge on the legal rights of students and their families:
“It is important that children are safe in school and other places that include working with children. Sadly, sexual predators are often known to work in schools, and there have been several cases of children being sexually assaulted by teachers and other staff. School officials have a legal obligation to do everything in their power to prevent and protect their students from sexual abuse,” explained Mr. Thompson.
