High School Teacher Accused of Sexual Abuse

ABC 8 News reported that a teacher has been having an inappropriate relationship with a student at Tabb High School, located at 4431 Big Bethel Rd, Yorktown, VA 23693. 

On Wednesday, June 8, 2022, a statement was made to the York County School division that 32-year-old Kristen McAllister was conducting inappropriately. McAllister was an English teacher and has been accused of having an "inappropriate relationship" with a student in 2021. 

The school has barred the teacher from all York County school district properties pending the outcome of the investigation. She has been charged with two counts of indecent liberties by a custodian and two counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

Can I Sue If a High School Teacher Sexually Abused Me?

Kevin Biniazan, our attorney contributor, represents school sex abuse victims and their families in legal litigation. Kevin has provided information about the legal options available, including when a victim can sue if sexually abused by a high school teacher.

"Too often predators take up positions of power and trust, allowing them access to vulnerable victims. High schools are both morally and legally responsible for protecting the children in their care from preventable dangers, such as sexual abuse. Administration and school districts should take all reasonable measures including video surveillance cameras and patrolling security officers, in addition to mandatory background checks."

"When a high school teacher is accused of sexually assaulting a student, it is critical to investigate the school's safety procedures. If a school failed to provide adequate safeguards, it can be held liable. Furthermore, if previous claims of misbehavior were reported but not investigated, the school system could be deemed negligent. Victims of sexual abuse by a high school teacher should speak with an experienced school sexual assault lawyer to fully explore their legal options."
