Lawsuit Alleges Teacher’s Aide Fondled Penis of a 3-Year-Old Daycare Student
WHAT: JEFF HERMAN (www.hermanlaw.com), a nationally-recognized attorney for victims of sexual abuse, announces the filing of a lawsuit against CHILDREN OF AMERICA for the sexual assault and battery of a 3-year-old child while attending the daycare by JEFFERSON CABRERA, a teacher’s aide at CHILDREN OF AMERICA.
According to the Complaint:
- On March 1, 2010, CABRERA was hired as a teacher’s aide at CHILDREN OF AMERICA without an adequate reference check.
- CABRERA, a male teacher’s aide, often wore a woman’s brassiere and makeup to work.
- Upon information and belief, for naptime, J.S., and other students were brought to another classroom, where CABRERA was the sole person in charge of supervising the children with no one adequately monitoring the surveillance cameras.
- On a daily basis between May, 2010 and June, 2010, CABRERA sexually assaulted and battered J.S. by fondling his penis during naptime.
J.S., by and through his mother, N.S. v. CHILDREN OF AMERICA was filed Monday in The Supreme Court of the State of New York County of Rockland.
Jeff Herman, the victim’s attorney, stated: “A daycare must protect students from sexual abuse by teachers. The lack of supervision at Children of America was incredibly detrimental to student safety.”
