California Teacher Sexual Abuse and Your Legal Rights
The Doan Law Firm California teacher sexual abuse lawyer team is here for you at (800) 349-0000. If your child has been the target of teacher sexual abuse, we can explain your important legal rights. If you are now an adult and are a survivor of California teacher sexual abuse, you also have rights and the ability to take steps to protect your legal interests.
In the past, parents envisioned schools as being safe places for their children. In many ways, schools remain positive environments for our kids. Nonetheless, from acts of violence to pervasive bullying to sexual assault, our schools arguably have become less safe today than they were even a decade ago. This includes regularly recurring California teacher sexual abuse of children in their charge.
Some people are under the illusion that California teacher sexual abuse “normally” (as if there is anything normal about this illicit conduct) takes the form of a misguided and inappropriate course of conduct between a teacher and a high school student. The grim, horrific reality is that while teacher sexual abuse involving high school students is occurring at an alarming rate in California and elsewhere in the United States, this horrendous misconduct is not confined to illicit encounters between educators and older teens.
The shocking reality is that teachers are sexually abusing middle school and elementary students as well. There are even recorded incidents of pre-kindergarten children being sexually victimized by their teachers of other caretakers.
California Law Extends the Time to Take Action to Obtain Justice
If you were the target of California teacher sexual abuse as a child, and you now are an adult, you may think that the time to take action to obtain justice has passed. California is on the forefront of states that has expanded the time period within which an adult may file a lawsuit as a survivor of sexual abuse. Generally speaking, in California, a person now has until the age of 40 to file a lawsuit for injuries sustained as the result of being sexually abused as a child. This includes California teacher sexual abuses claims.
Justice and Holding All Parties Accountable
When it comes to a situation involving teacher sexual abuse of a student, our firm is committed to working to hold all parties accountable. Examples of parties that likely bear some responsibility for the sexual abuse of a student include:
- Teacher or actual perpetrator of sexual abuse
- School and its administration
- School district
Justice and accountability necessitates that all responsible parties are held accountable for their contributions to the sexual abuse of a child in a particular case.
