Mukesh Kisun, Teacher at Rosemary Kennedy Elementary School, Charged with Sexual Assault

According to CBS Los Angeles, a public school teacher has been charged for engaging in lewd acts with a child.

Mukesh Kisun, 56-years-old, is a teacher at Rosemary Kennedy Elementary school. A former student accuses Kisun of sexually abusing her in 2015 when she was in the fifth grade. Details of the sexual assault were not released.

Allegations against Kisun were filed after the victim told a family member who reported them to a Riverside Police Department School Resources officer. Following an extensive investigation into the allegations, Kisun was arrested. Investigators believe there may be more victims given Kisun's position as a teacher.

Kisun has been charged with sexual assault for engaging in lewd acts with a child under the age of 14-years-old.

Legal Options of Victims Sexually Assaulted by a Teacher

Attorney contributor Mike Pfau, an experienced sexual assault attorney, has worked with numerous victims sexually abused by a teacher in civil lawsuits. Below, Bobby provides insight into the legal options of abused victims.

"Schools and administrations are obligated by law to provide a safe learning environment for their students. Unfortunately, many cases against teachers have surfaced recently. Schools must try their best to ensure they are not hiring predators to work in their buildings. These predators use their positions of trust and power over students to abuse them sexually. To ensure safety, schools must implement adequate security measures."

"When a school fails to provide adequate security for students enrolled, they may be considered liable for sexual assault that occurs by an employee. Furthermore, a school would be considered liable due to negligence as sexual assault often occurs due to a negligent third party, such as a school or administration. An example of negligence is if a school received reports of misconduct previously but ignored the allegations. Victims of sexual assault by a teacher should secure the services of an experienced sexual assault attorney to determine their legal options. Victims and their families should know that they may have grounds for a civil lawsuit in negligence cases."
