Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.
How long ago did this occur?
If it's been more than 4 years, the statute of limitations has likely expired under Florida law. Here's the statute: http://www.leg.state.fl.us/Statutes/index.cfm?App_mode=Display_Statute&Search_String=&URL=0000-0099/0095/Sections/0095.11.html. See 95.11(3).
Even if the statute of limitations hadn't run out, it may be hard to hold the school liable unless there was proof that it knew or should have known that the employee was a sex offender, etc. Also, there's no liability for the intervening criminal act of the employee.....but there is a possibility for negligence IF there is proof that the school acted improperly with information that could have made it clear that this employee was a problem.
