My child was sexually assaulted by a school teacher. What should I do?
Unfortunately, as sad as it is, these types of situations are becoming more and more prevalent in today’s society. If your child has been sexually assaulted or treated in a manner that is inappropriate by a school teacher or a school official, it is very important that you report that matter immediately to the school or the officials there. These claims often rely upon knowledge on the part of the school. If the school did not have knowledge that a teacher was doing this, then the school may or may not be responsible for the injuries sustained by your child. In any event, there are criminal aspects to a claim such as this too, where the teacher or the school official will be prosecuted. It’s important that you cooperate with local law enforcement in the prosecution of such heinous acts.
