LAUSD Faces Dozens Of Sexual Misconduct Complaints In Wake Of Miramonte Scandal

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — School officials on Friday were dealing with over two dozen complaints of sexual misconduct in the Los Angeles Unified school district.

KNX 1070’s John Brooks reports new allegations are mounting after last month’s arrest of two teachers at Miramonte Elementary.

One week after shocking allegations of sex abuse surfaced at the South LA school, nine complaints came in alleging sexual improprieties by district employees, with 16 more filed the following week.

Among the complaints are allegations of possession of pornography, the sexual assault of a student, sex with a child, and staring at a students’ breasts.

LAUSD Superintendent John Deasy said unlike in the past, no complaint will be ignored.

“For some time, we were not talking about it,” he said. “I think we had a whole era of where we hoped things went away…that’s not this administration’s era.”

The complaints will be forwarded to the appropriate law enforcement agency and if police do not pursue criminal charges, the district still has the option of filing administrative charges.

    Sadly there’s a growing number of people trying to cash in on this, who are coaching their kids what to say and how to act. LAUSD will have to pay them off (with taxpayer money). It’s really quite despicable as it clouds and discredits when these incidents really do happen.

    I can’t even get a job.That’s because that aS$hole lawyer Robert Hale from Hale and Nguyen in Brea couldn’t help me with my case. Now I’m a bitter aS$puck that has a beef with law enforcement and everybody on the internet. I used multiple screen names like [GROW..APAIR], [wg//af], [up//yours], [Mike in San Diego], [Mike in Upland], [1stman] and [kma] so no one can track me down. I challenge people to meet me in front of the Fullerton P.D. station for my protection.

      Mike, your post is hard to decode. Are you a school employee falsely accused O’d misconduct with students? What administrative process have you endured thus far. What you write here doesn’t do much to counter the claims but your frustration and anger are understandable. Those who have fallen under the reprisals and attacks of LAUSD are afforded no real due process and inning a competent lawyer is a difficult task. We have resources for you and several attorneys that are honest and competent. If you’re innocent, contact Richard Knickerbocker. He’ll know if you’re lying so don’t bother if you did do something inappropriate. Contact us at http://www.perdaily.com

    LAUSD does not have a credible program to safeguard teachers or students. Teachers are often victimized by students with false claims and at the same time students are victimized by teachers and other students because there is no credible system in place to ensure safety of both students and teachers. I filed a complaint (anonymous) for a teacher who was being verbally and physically assaulted…………….SHE got fired. Fast, while teachers with child molestation complaints sat in a special room, getting paid. That is NOT OK!

      Will you and the teacher contact Lenny at http://www.perdaily.com. We can help you. We have lawyers and support for victims of LAUSD corruption, we’ve been very successful thus far.

        Go ambulance-chase somewhere else.

    Ambulance chase? You must be joking. No lawyer goes after a school district with a teacher for her client. Even Gloria Allred veers clear of LAUSD and with good reason. You can’t win
    I am an advocate for teachers and students. I am also a victim. My interest is in facillitating resources for teachers who are betrayed by unions and railroaded because they did the right things like report abuse and waste. I am devotedvto helping parents voice concerns and to making sure stufents can learn. Eventually there will be a federal investigation and the world will know the truth about LAUSD and school districts run by white chalk criminals. The sooner the better. However, we are not interested in supporting teachers who deserve to be terminated because we are educators not attorneys. We are coming together in a class action law so were selective for this reason and because we have some integrity. Alpha Kenny Johnson and “mike” will never meet our standard for anything but proper reporting of someone unfit for duty as a teacher, though it’s unlikely they are teachers. Well, not unlikely, but one hopes they aren’t
