Clergy Teacher Abuse

Concerns About Minister, Priest Or Teacher Sexual Abuse?

You have to place the highest level of trust in the hands of those who care for your children. Have you questioned whether a teacher, minister or priest is capable of sexual abuse when a relationship seems too close? Teacher abuse can range from improper touching to sexual assault and rape. A school district that covered up reports, ignored warning signs or did not adequately screen staff may be liable.

Clergy abuse is often difficult to uncover even though past policies that shuffled priests between congregations and covered up allegations have ended. Churches can and have been held liable for failing to supervise ministers and volunteers.
