Lawsuit Filed Against Montgomery County Public Schools for Child Sexual Abuse by John Vigna
WHAT: Jeff Herman, a nationally recognized attorney for victims of sexual abuse, announces the
filing of a lawsuit against MONTGOMERY COUNTY PUBLIC SCHOOLS (MCPS) for child sexual abuse by JOHN
VIGNA, a teacher at CLOVERLY ELEMENTARY SCHOOL in Silver Spring, Maryland. VIGNA was recently
convicted and sentenced to 48 years in prison.

According to the Complaint:

• In 2008, Vigna was caught putting little girls on his lap two times in his fifth grade class
and was reprimanded.
• In 2013, Vigna was caught again putting a little girl on his lap in his fifth grade class.
After an investigation Vigna was reprimanded again and transferred to a third grade class.
• In 2013, Vigna was Jane Doe’s third grade teacher. Vigna groomed Jane Doe and began putting her
on his lap daily during lunch and movie time. Vigna sexually assaulted Jane Doe by fondling her
buttocks and vagina over her clothes and rubbed his erect penis against her.
• Vigna directed Jane Doe to visit him in his classroom during lunch and dismissal time when Jane
Doe was in fourth and fifth grade. Vigna bought Jane Doe books from the book fair and gave her
candy. During these visits, Vigna continued to sexually abuse Jane Doe and eventually began to
digitally penetrate Jane Doe’s vagina.
JANE DOE v. Montgomery County Public was filed in Montgomery County.

“The school had red flags that John Vigna was not safe. This convicted pedophile should not have
been around these children.” said Jeff Herman, the attorney for the victim in this case.
