Student Teacher Sexual Abuse Attorney
There will always be an imbalance of power in a teacher-student relationship. For this reason, there are special laws to protect students from sexual abuse at the hands of teachers. It is illegal for a teacher to have a sexual relationship with a student. Schools are required to report incidents of sexual abuse of students by teachers, coaches, counselors, youth ministers, and other school district employees.
Sexual Abuse: A National Epidemic
Despite increased awareness, sex abuse remains a serious national problem. Nearly one million children are victims of abuse each year, and about 120,000 are victims of sexual abuse. The vast majority of those cases go unreported.
Sadly, the biggest defense to claims of sexual abuse is the passage of time. Sex abuse victims are often hesitant to report the crime of sexual abuse and assault or sexual exploitation out of a sense of shame. For many of the same reasons, sex abuse victims are often reluctant to contact an attorney.
