York, PA - Former York County School of Technology Teacher Convicted of Sexual Assault

Former York County School of Technology Teacher Convicted of Sexually Assaulting As Student

According to YorkDailyRecord, former York County School of Technology teacher was convicted of sexually assaulting two students.

Kevin Nagle, 45-years-old, was found guilty of two counts of institutional sexual assault and related crimes. Although he was charged in two separate cases, the charges were tried together in court. Nagle sexually assaulted two 17-year-old boys when he fitted the students for pants at the school store.

Nagle is currently free on bail, although the prosecutor wanted to deny his bail. He has been sentenced to serve one to two years minus two days in York County Prison, following his release he will serve three years of probation.

Legal Options for Victims Sexually Assaulted At School

Attorney contributor Brian Kent, a sex abuse victim lawyer, represents victims of sexual abuse and their families in civil lawsuits. We’ve interviewed Kent to share his thoughts regarding the legal options of victims sexually abused by teachers.

Kent highlighted schools have a legal duty to provide a safe learning environment and protect their students. Unfortunately, sexual predators are sometimes found working with children in schools as administration, teachers, and coaches. These predators use their power and trust to engage with students inappropriately. Schools and administrations must do their best to protect students from sexual predators.

Can you sue a school for sexual assault by a teacher or school employee?

Kent replied, “victims and their families should ask if the school did everything possible to prevent sexual abuse. If the school did not have proper safety measures in place, they could be considered negligent. Some examples of negligence are the following: if prior complaints about sexual misconduct were reported against a teacher, and the teacher was still permitted to work, or if a teacher was caught on camera touching a child inappropriately, but the school does not address the issue. In such cases of negligence, a school could be considered liable, and the victim may have grounds for a civil lawsuit.”
