Sexual Assault Cases
Sexual assault in schools is a tragic reality that can involve children in pre-school or all the way up to those in high school. An act of sexual assault may be committed by other students, teachers, school or district staff, or persons who are not authorized to be on school grounds. Sexual assaults are known to take place in the following locations:
- School buses
- Vacant classrooms
- Teacher or staff offices
- School restrooms
Children are supposed to be closely supervised at all times on school grounds to minimize the risk of sexual assault, bullying, or other violent attacks. If your child has suddenly become withdrawn or has developed a sudden fear of or reluctance to attend school, this may be a sign that he or she has been a victim of sexual assault.
If your child has been sexually assaulted while at school or while participating in a school-related activity, it is important to consult with an experienced lawyer as soon as possible.
