Mary Alexander, Bobby Thompson Obtain $3.45 Million Settlement in Sex Abuse Case

Sacramento, CA – Mary Alexander, of Mary Alexander & Associates, and Bobby Thompson, of TLO Law obtained a $3.45 million settlement on behalf of a minor who was sexually molested and abused by a school employee in Elk Grove near Sacramento, CA.

According to the complaint, a school employee committed multiple acts of sexual molestation and abuse against a minor. The employee performed teacher’s-aide duties and managed/directed traffic during pickup time.  He was alone with the boy in the school bathroom when the molestation and abuse occurred.

A teacher actually walked in on the employee committing these acts but did not report it to school officials or the police. After the young boy told his parents what happened, they reported it to the police and school officials. It was discovered that the employee was previously fired from a job at a former preschool, just months before. But the school did not call his references. The employee also told a fellow employee that he had been fired for tickling children.

Defense counsel denied the abuse happened to the very end of the case, which ultimately settled for $3.45 million.

“This boy should have been protected and while we’re grateful we were able to fight on his behalf, survivors of childhood sex abuse carry the mental scars with them for the rest of their lives,” said attorney Mary Alexander. “This settlement allows his family to get him the therapy he needs to process the trauma.”

“After years of hearing denials, we were finally able to bring some closure to this family,” said attorney Bobby Thompson who specializes in sex abuse cases. “It’s unbelievable that the school put the child and his parents through this awful process, and hopefully this will be a sign for other schools to handle allegations of sexual abuse and molestation properly.”
