MARC WITES’ RECORD-BREAKING SEXUAL ASSAULT SETTLEMENT

3.6 M RECOVERED FOR THE VICTIM

It all began during the 2004-2005 school year, when a Palm Beach County Elementary School Teacher abused 4 girls in his third-grade class, all of South American decent and from families that had only recently moved to the United States. The girls are known as the Janie Does.

Unbeknownst to the Janie Does or their parents, this was not the first time the teacher was accused of engaging in such horrific conduct. Two years earlier, during the 2002-2003 school year, another young – also girl of South American decent and with parents with limited English skills – had the courage to tell her parents that the teacher was abusing her in the same fashion. The next day after telling her parents, they all went to the School to report it. According to the family, the Vice-Principal, however, refused to believe them. He remained in the classroom and abused the Janie Does 2 years later.

Ultimately, after 11 years of litigation, and on the eve of trial, the School Board relented, and agreed to a record-breaking $3.6 million dollar settlement for the Janie Does. One of the Janie Does explained her experience this way: “Many victims feel like it’s their fault and that they are accountable for what happened to them in some way. I’m here to say that it’s not your fault, and you are not alone. Don’t be afraid to speak up.”

FAQ

You can still bring a civil lawsuit for money damages. It is not necessary to report a crime to the police in order to bring a civil lawsuit for money damages.

If the plaintiff is a minor child, they will be identified in the lawsuit as “Janie Doe” or “Johnny Doe” to protect their identity. If the plaintiff is an adult, the adult plaintiff will most likely have to use their full and real name in all court proceedings.

Maybe. In civil lawsuits, each party, including both the plaintiff and the defendant, has a right to attend each party’s deposition, the mediation, and the trial. However, in cases involving minors, courts will often enter orders that provide that the defendant cannot attend the minor child’s deposition, and other protections may be afforded by the court to protect the child and their family.

Yes . You will have to testify. If you hire our law firm, we will do everything reasonably possible to prepare you for your testimony, and we will be sitting by your side during your testimony.
