Legal Rights of Victims Sexually Abused by a School Teacher

Our attorney contributor Brian Kent is an experienced sexual assault attorney who represents victims of sexual assault in civil lawsuits. Brian has offered the following commentary on the legal options of victims abused sexually by a teacher.

"School administrations are legally obligated to ensure the safety of their students while providing the safest possible learning environment. Schools should exhaust all efforts to provide a safe campus, including implementing certain levels of safety measures. These measures could include security cameras, staff check-ins, and enforcing stringent background checks prior to employment. Sadly, many teachers have been accused and charged for sexually abusing students across the country. Schools must do their best to prevent hiring predators and limiting sexual abuse."

"In the event that a student suffers sexual abuse by a teacher, they should secure the services of an experienced sexual assault attorney in order to understand their legal options. Some sexual assault cases happen due to negligence on behalf of a third party, such as school officials. One example of negligence could include if misconduct was previously reported but ignored by the school officials. Victims may have sufficient grounds for a civil lawsuit against the school if negligence is found to be a factor. Additionally, they may be entitled to compensation."
