Lawsuit Alleges Pedophile Teacher Still Works at Jupiter Middle School, Despite Allegations of Sexual Harassment 

WHAT: JEFF HERMAN, a nationally recognized attorney for victims of sexual abuse, announces the filing of a lawsuit against the SCHOOL BOARD OF PALM BEACH COUNTY for sexual harassment and abuse of a male student by KENNETH PHILLIPS, a 7th grade teacher in good standing at JUPITER MIDDLE SCHOOL.

According to the Complaint:

·         KENNETH PHILLIPS continues to be employed as a 7th grade teacher in good standing at JUPITER MIDDLE SCHOOL.

·         Upon information and belief, KENNETH PHILLIPS is a pedophile with a preference for preadolescent and adolescent boys, as well as a pronounced sexual foot fetish.

·         Administrators at JUPITER MIDDLE SCHOOL and School Board officials had actual notice since 2009 that Phillips was grooming and sexually harassing boys in the school.

·         Despite this actual notice, they failed to engage in any meaningful corrective measures to protect the boys in the School.

·         Upon information and belief, KENNETH PHILLIPS sexually abused and harassed JOHN DOE beginning in 2010, during his 7th and 8th grade school years at JMS.

JOHN DOE NO. 129 v. SCHOOL BOARD OF PALM BEACH COUNTY was filed today in Palm Beach County.

 

Jeff Herman, the attorney for the victim in this case, stated: “A school must never needlessly endanger children. When it comes to protecting kids, schools should always make the safest choice.”

WHO: Jeff Herman, the attorney for the victim in this case.
