According to WAVY, a man sexually assaulted a child on John K. Kennedy Middle School campus located at 2100 S Fiske Blvd, Rockledge, FL 32955.
Police were informed on Friday, February 4, 2022, that a girl was sexually assaulted between 2:45 and 6 p.m. on January 10, 2022, on the school campus. The abuse was said to have occurred during an after-school program, and the male was unknown to the victim. The program was said not to have been affiliated with the Suffolk public schools.
Attorney contributor Kevin Biniazan fights for the justice of victims of school sex assault by filing civil lawsuits. As an experienced school sexual abuse attorney, Kevin recently explained who can be held liable for sexual assault on a middle school campus.
"Many times when victims are sexually abused, it is due to the negligence of a third party. Too often lately, schools and educational programs have been reported as hosts of sexual abuse. Most states have laws that require schools to implement preventative measures that ensure the safety of the children on their campus. This includes during regular school hours in addition to after-school programs. Regardless of the program, these laws regulate the premise's safety standards. Security cameras and patrolling resource officers are both beneficial security measures that help reduce the risk of abuse. When a school fails to provide a sufficient safety plan, it can lead to the school being held accountable for abuse that occurs on their campus."
"When someone is abused on the campus, the school's safety measures should be investigated. If the perpetrator was allowed on the campus but had a history of misconduct, the school could be liable for failing to prevent further abuse."
"If school negligence can be identified as a contributing factor, the victim and their family may have grounds to pursue a civil lawsuit. However, they can learn more about their legal options by speaking with an experienced school sexual abuse attorney."
