6 Million Dollar Settlement Against Teacher Convicted Of Sexual Assault

By PRNewswire

REDLANDS, Calif., Aug. 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Suit against former Redlands school district teacher Laura Whitehurst by student who fathered her child results in largest single-victim settlement sex abuse case against a public agency in U.S. history. Attorneys representing the victim of convicted child molester and former Redlands school district teacher Laura Whitehurst today announced a 6-million-dollar settlement of a lawsuit against Whitehurst and her employers, the Redlands Unified School District and the Citrus Valley High School. This settlement represents the largest settlement of a sex abuse case involving a single victim against a public agency in the United States.“The size of this settlement represents the gravity of the damage done to this young victim and his family and it also highlights the extreme malfeasance and neglect by school officials who turned a blind eye to the criminal conduct of a teacher and failed to protect a student. Our law firm is committed to reforming the Redlands Unified School District so that parents can be confident that their children will be protected from abusers,” said victims’ attorney Vince W. Finaldi.The suit alleged that teacher Laura Elizabeth Whitehurst began her sexual relationship with the victim (John BB Doe), who was 16 years old at the time, in the summer of 2012 and the abuse lasted for a year.  As a result of this sexual abuse, Whitehurst became impregnated with victim’s child, and gave birth to the child in June of 2013.READ FULL STORY
