Unfortunately, we have handled many cases where people in power (teachers, professors, administration) have abused their power over students and engaged in sexual activity. This comes in many forms, and even though a consensual adult relationship could take place, there is a reason schools and universities have a strict policy against teacher-student relationships. That reason is because there is always a potential for abuse of power involved in those relationships.
It is not always easy to report something like this. When in doubt always tell your parents. If you have nowhere to turn, call our office or another lawyers office, our office would advise and assist you accordingly. Sometimes, having a lawyer on your side just to report the case could be hugely beneficial and give you the strength to confront the people who are abusing/harassing you.
Seeking out legal help should always be one of the first things you do. Meeting with an attorney automatically creates an Attorney-Client privilege. This means that anything and everything you say to your lawyer remains in strict confidentiality that is protected by law. You never have to worry about anyone finding out anything if you choose in the end not to pursue any legal recourse. But, talking to a lawyer and knowing your rights is possibly one of the most important things you can do to protect yourself.
Many victims do not know where to turn. It is important that you seek the help of an Attorney immediately. Our law office handles these types of cases and can help. Call 702-333-4223 for a free consultation today.
