Robotics Lab Co-founder and Instructor Charged With Sexually Abusing 6 Children

My Central Jersey has reported that sexual abuse charges have been brought against an instructor at Robot Revolution located at 34 Maple St, Summit, NJ 07901. 

In November 2020, 60-year-old Christopher P. Marbaix was arrested following allegations he molested children he taught at the robotics lab. At least six children came forward to accuse the lab's co-founder and instructor of inappropriately touching them multiple times while they attended the robotics class from September 2015 to December 2018. All the victims were between the ages of 9 and 15 years old. 

Marbaix was relieved of his position in 2018, according to the remaining partner, Davin Czukosk. Czokusk also stated that he had added more policies and safety measures since the allegations. The robotic school is the largest in the state and has had more than 3,000 students enrolled since it was founded in 2013.

Lawsuits For Sexual Abuse by Robotics Instructors

Attorney contributor Brian Kent represents sex abuse victims and their families in civil lawsuits. Brian has kindly shared some information on the legal rights of sex abuse victims and their families, highlighting when victims can sue for being sexually abused by a robotics instructor

"All schools and educational institutes should prioritize student safety. Parents trust that when their children are in the hands of the instructors, they are being protected and kept safe. This includes protections against sexual abuse. Unfortunately, there have been numerous cases of instructors being accused of sexually abusing their students. These victims and their families have legal rights, including the right to sue if the educational institute is found negligent."

"While filing a police report can bring criminal charges against the perpetrator, it is not always the only option for victims. They may also have grounds for a lawsuit against the institute. If the institution failed to uphold its legal duty to provide safety for its students, it could be held liable. An institution's safety plan might include security cameras, background checks on all staff, and procedures for reporting misconduct. If safety measures have been neglected or previous reports of sexual misconduct involving the employee were ignored, the institute could be held liable for failing to prevent the abuse. Victims of sexual abuse by an instructor are encouraged to learn more about their legal options by consulting with an experienced sexual abuse attorney."
