LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — A former student at 96th Street Elementary is filing suit against the Los Angeles Unified School District claiming the district did not do enough to stop a first grade teacher convicted of molesting minors.
The plaintiff, identified only as Jane Doe, claims Louis Moreno, a former teacher at the elementary school, sexually violated her from 1989 to 1991.READ MORE: GoFundMe Set Up For Tomas Mejia, Security Guard Fatally Stabbed At Park La Brea Apartments
Back in 1993, Moreno pleaded guilty to 11 counts of sexual battery against minors under the age of 14, but the victim claims the district was aware of Moreno’s behavior and did nothing to stop it.READ MORE: United Teachers LA Vote In Favor Of Agreement With LAUSD For Physical Return To 2021-2022 School Year
“This school district is incapable of protecting little kids,” attorney Luis Carrillo said. “This school district hires perverts who abuse, sexually abuse the little kids and leaves the kids traumatized for the rest of their lives.”

LAUSD said that it had not yet been served with the suit and does not comment on pending litigation, though it said the “safety and well-being of our students remains our top priority.”
