HS Coach's Years of Abuse: How School Administrators Failed to Stop It?

According to CVHP, several current and former administrators are under fire for their alleged failure to report years of sexual abuse at the City View Junior/Senior High School located at 1600 City View Dr, Wichita Falls, TX 76306.

On June 24-26, 2022, multiple allegations of inappropriate conduct were made against Bobby Morris, the Head Boys' Basketball Coach at City View Junior/Senior High School. Following these allegations, Morris was placed on administrative leave while an investigation was conducted. After an in-depth inquiry, police discovered that Morris had committed four separate acts of sexual misconduct with four female students over a period of eight years. Unfortunately, during a welfare check on Monday, June 27, 2022, Morris was discovered to have taken his own life.

City View ISD officials were made aware of four incidents during the 2018 school year, two of which were reported by friends of the victims and two by the victims themselves. The affidavit noted that the administrator conducted investigations into the incidents, but no reports were ever made to law enforcement. The following administrators were arrested on February 8, 2023, and are facing charges for failing to report the abuse. At least two more arrests are expected later this week.

  • Anthony Ray Bushong — Current Superintendent of City View ISD
  • Carrie Lynn Allen — Current Assistant Superintendent of City View ISD
  • Daryl Alexander Frazier — Former principal of City View Jr/Sr High School
  • Rudy Glynn Hawkins, Jr. — Current Athletic Director at City View Jr/Sr High School
  • Cindy Pope Leaverton — Current Counselor at City View Jr/Sr High School

Filing Lawsuits For High School Sex Abuse

Attorney contributor Marc Lenahan is an experienced school sex abuse lawyer in Texas. Marc often represents victims of sexual abuse in civil lawsuits. Recently, Marc discussed how victims sexually abused by a high school coach can seek justice.

Sexual abuse is a serious issue affecting many people, especially in the education system. It is the responsibility of high schools to take the necessary steps to prevent sexual abuse and to provide support to those who have been victims of such abuse. It is also important to be aware of the legal rights of school sex abuse victims to file a civil suit against a negligent high school.

High schools must take proactive steps to prevent sexual abuse from occurring. This includes having a clear policy on what constitutes appropriate behavior and providing a safe and supportive learning environment for all students. High schools should also conduct background checks on all members of staff. Security cameras throughout the campus are another way schools can reduce the risk of danger.

It is important to be aware of the legal rights of school sex abuse victims to file a civil suit against a negligent high school. Such a suit can be filed if a school fails to take the necessary steps to prevent sexual abuse and/or fails to respond to reports of abuse. In such cases, victims can seek damages for their physical and emotional suffering and hold the school accountable for its negligence. Victims and their families can get legal guidance by speaking with an experienced school sex abuse lawyer.
