Details of alleged sexual abuse at California’s Trinity group home
Affidavits describe Trinity School admins' failure to report after they discovered that a student reportedly sexually assaulted another student–even though the administrators were made aware that a female student at the school was being inappropriately touched by another student.
Midland Police announced that four administrators have been arrested for Failure to Report with Intent to Conceal Neglect or Abuse.
According to arrest affidavits, a female student under the age of 14 was reportedly sexually assaulted multiple times at Trinity school going back as far as September 2019.
The victim told an interviewer at the Midland Children's Advocacy Center in February 2022 that she had been assaulted every other day for around four months while at the school.
Also, a woman says she was sexually abused by her gym teacher at the Trinity School when she was a little girl in the early 1980s, new court papers allege.
The woman — whose name is being withheld — filed suit against the K-12 private school and gym teacher Robert Tyson claiming he sexually abused her on “numerous occasions” when she was around 5 or 6 years old.
Specific allegations of abuse include:
- Around 1982 and 1983 during gym class, Tyson had the victim “reach into his pocket to retrieve a sticker,” the court papers allege.
- He then “grew emboldened and began to create opportunities for him to inappropriately and illegally engage in sexual contact and touching with the plaintiff, a minor child,” the suit claims.
- Then, on multiple occasions, he took her “into his office, closed the door, and sexually abused plaintiff,” the filing alleges. Tyson did this “in order to gratify his own depraved sexual desires,” the court documents allege.
Victims and their families are encouraged to request a free, private case evaluation from a qualified attorney as soon as possible, as victims only have until the end of 2022 to file a valid claim!
Specific instances of sexual abuse allegations in California group homes and children's centers
Los Angeles County alone is one of the nation’s largest juvenile justice systems, with probation officers responsible for protecting 3,000 youths in 21 halls and camps.
The department, operating with a yearly budget of approximately $700 million, has been the subject of various federal investigations in recent years for failing to prevent, report, and document child abuse.
The Los Angeles Times identified the following cases through court documents, law enforcement records, and department sources.
Specific instances of sexual and physical abuse allegations in California group homes and children's centers include:
- A probation officer was captured on tape beating a youth in a juvenile hall recreation room – the officer was later convicted of battery and sentenced to 24 months probation.
The disciplined officer’s attorney said “extenuating circumstances” led to the beating, noting that his client was not properly trained to supervise violent youths.”
- A probation officer was found to have had sexual intercourse with three youths in the laundry, supply, and interview rooms of the detention hall where she worked – she later pled guilty to five counts of felony sexual abuse and was sentenced to four years in prison.
According to the officer, “I had a consensual relationship with a young man who was 17 and I stupidly thought I was in love with…everything else I did was completely inappropriate, unethical and extremely unprofessional.”
- A probation officer instructed five teenagers under her care to beat another teenager – she mistakenly believed a youth inmate had stolen her cellphone and was later sentenced to a year in jail.
The injured child was not allowed to see a doctor until the next day when another probation officer noticed his injuries–the officer later found her cellphone in the parking lot.
The team at Consumer Justice Action believes that every victim of sexual abuse at Trinity group home in California should receive justice and compensation in a court of law – remember that victims only have until the end of 2022 to file a valid claim!
