Folsom Special Education Teacher Aide Arrested for Child Sex Abuse


Folsom Special Education Teacher lawyer sue lawsuit compensation incident attorney

Gary Spencer Jimenez Jr., 23, was arrested under the accusation of sexually abusing a child. The abuse allegedly occurred at Folsom Midder School. Jimenez is suspected of kidnapping a child under 14, oral copulation by force or fear of bodily injury, and a lewd act on a child under 14 years old using force, violence, or duress.

The suspect worked as a special education teacher with the Folsom Cordova Unified School District. According to officials, the incident occurred on August 31, 2023; the school district informed police of the incident reported on campus, and the authorities determined that a child had been sexually abused.

According to reports, Jimenez worked at the school through a temp agency (he had been with the school district since the final months of the last school year). He also worked at Oak Chan Elementary School through the agency. The authorities also believe that he may have been a temp worker at other school districts, although this is yet to be confirmed.

Officials are urging anyone with information on Jimenez (including any possible victims) to come forward as soon as possible.

Although students are supposed to be safe at schools, the truth is that many schools and entire school districts simply fail to keep students safe – so sexual assault occurs. If your child was sexually assaulted at a school or if you were sexually assaulted at a school when you were a student, you must seek legal help as soon as possible. You could have the right to file a sexual assault lawsuit.

Law Group are more than ready to provide you with the guidance that you need to fight for your rights and recover the compensation that you are owed.

The Consequences of Sexual Abuse in Children

Sexual abuse is known to have lasting effects, especially in children. These effects exist physically, mentally, and emotionally. Some examples of the long-lasting effects that can result due to child sex abuse include the following:

  • Sexually transmitted infections
  • Unwanted pregnancies and related complications
  • Injuries to genitals
  • Injuries to reproductive organs
  • Fracturs, lacerations, scrapes, and bruises (especially when there was a use of force)
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Panic disorder
  • Anxiety disorder
  • Depression
  • Increased risk of drug abuse
  • Increased risk of suicide and other self-harm

Can I Sue for Child Sexual Abuse at a School Campus?

Yes – you could certainly have the right to sue for child sex abuse that occurred at a school. This is because school districts and all staff have the duty to keep students safe. Unfortunately, many school districts fail to ensure that staff are subject to background checks, goes through the necessary training, and, once hired, is properly supervised. In addition, when reports of sexual abuse arise or even suspicion of any sort of misconduct, a lack of training on how to respond or what steps to take when these allegations arise, no clear policy, or even a lack of clear reporting method, can result in nothing being done.

What about cases in which the staff in question was hired through a temp agency. Temp agencies also have to ensure that their workers meet certain requirements before they can work at schools. When temp agencies fail to do so and incidents happen, then the temp agency could be liable.

In some cases, both the temp agency and the school district could share liability.

Overall, it is important that you understand that no matter the specific details, you could still have grounds to file a lawsuit. Even if you are unsure if you can sue the school district, the temp agency, or both entities, you can be certain that our lawyers are ready to provide you with all the information that you need to help you understand your legal options.

The Compensation Available for School Child Sex Abuse Cases

School child sex abuse cases typically result in the recovery of a significant amount of compensation. Some of the categories of compensation available for recovery include the following:

  • Medical costs
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of consortium
  • Funeral and burial expenses (in case of the victim’s death)
  • Punitive damages
  • Legal fees

Some cases, specifically cases where there was a cover up or attempted cover up, are eligible for treble damages. When a case is eligible for treble damages, the total compensation awarded is tripled.

You may have many questions about the compensation that you could recover for your sexual assault lawsuit. These questions might include the following. How much compensation can I win for my child sex abuse case against a school? What categories of compensation are available for a child sexual abuse claim? What is the average value of these types of cases? Although these are all important questions, they can be difficult to answer without first ensuring that the details of your claim are evaluated. For example, although these types of cases can be associated with an average value of $1.5. million and sometimes more, there is no guarantee that your case will reach this value.

For more information about the possible value of your claim, contact us today. Our lawyers are committed to getting our clients the maximum recovery available.

How Long Do I Have to Sue for Child Sex Abuse?

Under California law, victims of child sex abuse have until the age of 40 (that is, 22 years after turning 18-years-old) to file a claim. Sure, this might seem like plenty of time to pursue a claim, but we recommend that affected parties seek legal help as soon as possible. If you are not a victim but rather the victim’s parent, you could also pursue a claim for sex abuse. To ensure that you understand the statute of limitation or deadline that applies to your claim, whether you are the parent of the victim or a victim of child sex abuse, contact us today. Our lawyers will provide you with all the information that you need to file your claim on time.

Who Is Responsible For A Whataburger Slip And Fall Injury Accident?

Many Whataburger slip and fall accident victims are unsure if they have the right to sue Whataburger or if the injuries they suffered are their own fault. So, it is critical that all personal injury victims contact Normandie Law Firm as soon as possible after their injuries to discuss their incident with an experienced slip and fall attorney.

Your Normandie Law Firm Whataburger slip and fall attorney will ask many questions about the incident to determine if you have grounds for a lawsuit. The crucial factor in this process is the duty of care or lack of duty of care provided by the Whataburger staff. Duty of care is a part of premises liability that defines the care that must be offered by business and property owners to ensure the safety of guests and customers.

The guidelines require that the property or business owner or their staff must provide care equal to or greater than what the average prudent person would deliver. So, it is easy to determine what is expected of the team at Whataburger or any establishment you visit. For example, if you see ice on the floor, you stop and pick it up to ensure no one suffers a slip and fall injury. If you are mopping the floor, you alert others to the wet conditions to allow them to avoid the more hazardous areas. These are the standard actions most people would take to ensure the safety of everyone on the property. And they are required by the staff of Whataburger.

When Duty Of Care Is Not Provided

If the staff at Whataburger is not providing the basic level of care required under duty of care, they can be determined to be negligent in their duty of care. Furthermore, if that negligence is later found to have caused or contributed to someone’s slip and fall accident injuries, Whataburger can be liable for the victim’s losses and damages. When negligence has been determined in your slip and fall injuries, your Normandie Law Firm attorney will advise you of your right to file a Whataburger slip and fall lawsuit to secure the compensation that is owed to you.

What Is The Value Of My Whataburger Slip And Fall Lawsuit?

Each personal injury lawsuit value is determined independently by compiling all the allowable expenses incurred by the injury victim. You will accomplish this task with the help and guidance of the expert legal team at Normandie Law Firm. Our staff has decades of combined experience calculating these critical amounts, and they will ensure you are getting the most robust amount allowed for the losses and damages you suffered. The items commonly included in the claim amount are:

  • All current and future medical expenses related to the injuries you suffered at Whataburger
  • The value of any personal property that was destroyed or damaged in your Whataburger slip and fall
  • Your lost income if the injuries you suffered prevented you from returning to work until you were fully recovered
  • Legal fees and expenses from Normandie Law Firm for preparing, filing, and litigating your Whataburger slip and fall lawsuit

If the injuries you sustained in the slip and fall incident were severe and required a significant healing time, you can seek compensation for your pain and suffering. This is not a documented amount, so the staff at Normandie Law Firm will guide you in selecting a reasonable and fair amount based on similar claims they have handled.

What Are Considered Severe Slip And Fall Injuries?

The impact that a specific injury has on a slip and fall victim will vary based on their age and overall health. However, there are several injuries that are almost always considered severe because of the impact they have on the victim’s life and ability to care for themselves. These injuries include:

  • Shattered bones or compound fractures
  • Injuries to the neck, back, or spinal cord
  • Severe lacerations or puncture wounds that include damage to internal organs or internal bleeding
  • Facial injuries to the nose, eyes, ears, mouth, or teeth
  • Head injuries such as a skull fracture, brain hemorrhage, brain contusion, or other traumatic brain injury

The long-term results of these injuries often include emotional issues such as nightmares, anxiety, and depression due to the loss of quality of life the victim must endure. In addition, they feel anger and a wide range of other emotions when discovering that the accident they suffered could have easily been prevented if the staff at Whataburger had been meeting their legal obligations of duty of care.

When To File Your Whataburger Slip And Fall Lawsuit

As a personal injury victim, you are given two years from the incident date to file a lawsuit against Whataburger.

If any exceptions to this time limit apply to your case and could be advantageous, your Normandie Law Firm legal staff will explain them.
