Student molestation is when inappropriate and indecent sexual acts occur between a student, usually a minor under eighteen, and a teacher, principal, janitor or other school employee. It can include fondling, kissing, and even oral, anal or vaginal penetration. Molestation, whether a child at school is the victim, or a child in another environment, is a serious crime that can have long term effects.
Student molestation is a disturbing issue that occurs more often than people might believe. Children are encouraged to trust their teachers and other school staff, but what happens when a trusted individual breaks this trust and harms an innocent child? Student molestation usually happens behind closed doors, with the child too afraid and embarrassed to report the abuse.
Research & Studies Shows:
Studies show that many parents aren’t aware of the signs of molestation. As a parent, it is very important that you know the signs, because all children are at risk, both male and female, and all ages. So what are the signs of sexual abuse? The signs can be both physical and behavioral, including: torn or bloody underwear, pregnancy, aggression, depression, crying, sexually acting out behavior, and much more. The signs will depend on the age of the child, as well as the type of molestation.
If you suspect that your child has been a victim of molestation, then you might consider retaining an attorney to assist you with receiving the damages that you and your child are entitled to. However, you should keep in mind that such lawsuits can be quite grueling, for both you and your child. The lawsuit itself has the potential to further traumatize your child. If you are adamant about filing charges, you certainly have the right to do so, and ensuring that you have adequate representation is important.
