CA Swim Instructor Arrested For Inappropriately Touching a Young Child

According to NBC San Diego, the San Diego County Sheriff's Office arrested a former swim instructor from Callan Swim School at 335 S Rancho Santa Fe Rd, San Marcos, CA 92078. 

On September 29, 2022, 19-year-old Nicholas Piazza was arrested on charges including performing lewd acts on a child under 14, committing a felony while on bail, and contempt of court. A parent of a child taking private swim lessons from Piazza reported to police that the instructor sexually assaulted her 7-year-old son. The abuse was said to occur on two separate occasions between September 7 and September 25. 

This was not Piazza's first time being accused of sex crimes with his students. In July 2021, he was accused of inappropriately touching a child while employed with the Callan Swim School. The school was notified of the accusations spurring a criminal investigation.

Filing Lawsuits For Victims Sexually Abused By a Swim Instructor

Attorney contributor Bobby Thompson represents sex abuse victims and their families in California. Bobby helps them find justice by filing civil lawsuits for compensation. During a recent discussion, he highlighted some of the legal options available for victims sexually abused by a swim instructor.

"Swim schools have a legal obligation to keep their students safe. Young children are easy prey for sexual predators who gain employment in these positions of trust. It is possible to reduce the risk of sexual battery and assault by requiring background checks on all instructors and installing cameras around the school."

"Criminal and civil law can be used to help victims of sexual abuse. Criminal charges can be brought against the perpetrator when abuse is reported. However, if the swim school owner neglected to provide sufficient security, they could be held accountable. Victims and their families can learn more about their rights to file a civil lawsuit by speaking with an experienced sex abuse attorney."
