Attorney Commentary: In the second part of this story, school sexual abuse attorney Mike Pfau discusses the legal rights of teacher sex abuse victims and their families.

A Sargus High School substitute teacher was arrested and suspended by the school this week for allegedly having oral sex with a student.

28-year-old David Cornish was arrested on Wednesday on suspicion of felonious oral copulation with a person under the age of 16.

In a news release regarding the arrest, the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department said that an unlawful sexual relationship between the teacher and student is suspected to have happened between April and May of this year.

The William S. Hart Union High School District says it suspended Cornish after they were notified of the allegations.

Police have not found any evidence of other victims at this time.

Commentary From a Lawyer for Students Sexually Abused by Teachers

Attorney contributor, Mike Pfau, sexual abuse victim attorney, has offered to share some commentary on the legal rights of school sex abuse victims and their families:

“When parents send their children off to school, the last thought they’d have is whether their children will be safe or not. School officials must take this crisis seriously and must do everything they can to protect their students from becoming victims. When a teacher is accused of sexual misconduct involving students, the allegations must be taken seriously, reported, and investigated. In some school sex abuse cases, the abuse may not have happened if not for negligence by the school which offers grounds for a lawsuit for the victims involved,” shared Mr. Pfau.
