When John was a high school freshman, he transferred into a new school mid-year. With a rough home life, John sought out community and family through teachers and friends. There was one teacher he especially confided in, and that teacher groomed him to not resist abuse. This teacher then proceeded to abuse John.
Confused, John told a friend about the relationship with his teacher. His friend knew this was not appropriate and reported it to the school. John was brought to DCAC, where he was interviewed by our forensic team. He and his family received counseling services and John courageously testified in the case brought against his teacher.
Today, John is a college student studying to be a social worker to help other kids in need.
