Alexander Dawson School finds itself in legal trouble after one of its teachers, Da’Jon Tyrik, was sued for sexual abuse committed to several female students.

It was in February of this year that Child Protective Services contacted the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office to report a sexual assault to a student by a teacher.

During the time of the investigation, detectives met with four students from the Alexander Dawson School, two of them were then 17 years old, one 18 and the other 19, as well as with their parents to hear the case.

The four young women reported that their former music teacher had improperly touched themIn other words, in a sexual way, they also indicated that the touching began in January and continued until the day of the report, February 4.

Prolonged hugs, inappropriate language, sexually explicit images, caresses, kisses on the forehead, as well as other inappropriate actions were those that were continually received by the teacher within the school facilities and during school hours.

Eight months after authorities were notified of the teacher’s misbehavior with the students, a father sued both James and the school.

“The school’s callous disregard for the safety and well-being of its students appears to fit into this long period of time and be a permanent pattern of covering up and minimizing sexual assault on its campus and marginalizing the victims of such assaults,” it is as well as the father, whose identity is unknown so far, spoke out against his daughter’s school.

As reported by Daily Camera, The teacher not only had actions that were not his own against the plaintiff’s daughter, but he also sent her text messages and even slapped her: “James abused his position of trust as a teacher, engaged in classic grooming behaviors with Mary and other students; harassed and sexually assaulted Mary ”.

This is not the first time the teacher has faced a legal problem like this, as it has transpired, he resigned his old job located in California for similar accusations.

James faced a $ 10,000 bond and his arraignment hearing was postponed to January 12.
