According to WIFR, allegations have been brought against a former elementary teacher from Loves Park Elementary School located at 344 Grand Ave, Loves Park, IL 61111.
An investigation began on July 2, 2022, that led to the arrest of 36-year-old Brandon Green on Monday, July 25, 2022. Green, a former Harlem School District teacher and coach, was said to have known the victim whom he had inappropriate contact with over the internet. He is facing charges for solicitation of child pornography, indecent solicitation of a child, and grooming.
Attorney contributor Brian Kent has advocated for sex abuse victims for years in Illinois. Through his experience as a school sex abuse attorney, he helps victims and their families get justice and financial compensation. He recently shared how victims have a legal right to seek justice if they have been sexually abused by an elementary school teacher.
"Elementary schools should be a safe place for young children to learn and socialize without fear of preventable dangers. Basic security measures should be implemented by schools and school districts to make their students and campus safe. These often include cameras in common areas and following a proper procedure for reporting misconduct. The district is responsible for conducting background checks on all teachers, coaches, and staff. A civil lawsuit could be brought against the school district or school officials if they have neglected basic safety procedures."
"An investigation should be conducted if an elementary school teacher is arrested for any kind of sex crimes, especially those involving minors. There have been too many instances of abuse occurring due to the neglect of a school or its district. If any reports of misconduct were made yet ignored by the officials, they could be deemed liable. Victims and their families should speak with an experienced school sexual abuse victim attorney to best learn their legal rights."
