The total settlement to all four victims in this school sexual abuse case approximates $19 Million.  The first two victims received approximately 4.65 million and the two additional victims received $7 Million each.  Usually, the value of these multiple victim claims depends upon, unfortunately, whether the victim is first in line or last.  This is because whether the school district knew or should have known that their employee was engaging in inappropriate sexual contact with students oftentimes hinges upon reported incidents to prior victims.

There have been a spate of sexual abuse allegations of teachers and students throughout Southern California in the last few years.  They span from San Diego to Orange County to LAUSD to now Redlands School District (San Bernardino County).  It seems that if even half of these allegations are true, the CA school districts need to come up with a better system of screening, hiring, training and supervising teachers to prevent this type of abuse from occurring to this degree in the future.

Child sexual abuse is one of the most reprehensible acts that a person can commit.  Unfortunately, it occurs most often in institutional settings like schools.  This is a tragic example of one such, alleged incident where the alleged victim (now in her mid twenties) confronted her accuser (a former High School Vice Principal in Alhambra CA who has now resigned).  The alleged victim secretly tape recorded the confrontation and posted it up on Youtube, which prompted the teacher's resignation.  As the article points out, the statute of limitations (or time deadline) for filing a civil claim for damages related to sexual abuse is alternatively 8 years from the time the victim turns 18 or one year from the date of discovery of the abuse if a psychological professional is willing to attest that the minor suffered from repressed memories of the events in question. Hopefully, this victim will pursue justice!

While Jerry Sandusky has every right as  a criminal defendant now convicted of criminal child sexual abuse to have his appeals heard up to the high court, I hope that the appellate process will be quickly resolved so that the victims of his sex crimes can move on.

The sheer volume of confirmed and suspected instances of individuals engaging in the sexual exploitation of children is shocking and the professional backgrounds of many of the defendants is troubling. We can no longer assume that the only people who would stoop to prey on children are just unemployed drifters.

Throughout California, there appears to be a systemic problem in the procedures whereby reports of child sexual abuse are made.  This is according to a federal study conducted based upon several high profile sexual scandals involving school age children in CA.  Lack of proper training, fear of damaging reputations, and other factors are apparently in play in this failure to promptly report allegations of minor sex abuse.  Recommendations are being made to improve this problem according to the story.
