Hoybjerg Law Implores Child Sexual Abuse Victims To Come Forward

​​Instances of institutional abuse in schools can take many forms, including physical violence, sexual abuse, among others.​

Paul Hoybjerg and Vince Finaldi of Manly, Steward & Finaldi have filed suit against SCUSD, alleged sexual predator

Not long after the arrest of a male teacher who taught at Bowling Green – Chacon Language and Science Academy for lewd and lascivious acts with multiple students, victims began seeking out Paul Hoybjerg at Hoybjerg Law.

Paul is a personal injury and abuse attorney with years of experience representing victims of institutional child abuse, which has occurred at schools and churches. At a press conference on May 12, 2023, Paul and his colleague Vince Finaldi of Manly, Stewart & Finaldi announced filing their civil lawsuit against the alleged abuser and the Sacramento Unified School District.

“The family had a right to trust that when they sent their beloved child off to school, that she would be safe,” Paul said during the press conference. “That trust has been shattered.”

Based on his recent cases, he said anecdotally that institutional abuse in the Sacramento Area seems to be more targeted toward children of immigrant families, like those at the Bowling Green – Chacon Language and Science Academy.

It’s essential for families who aren’t receiving the support they need from their child’s school, school district, church, or archdiocese, to contact litigators like himself who can stop the abuse immediately and ensure the alleged abuser faces justice.

If your child was a victim of the alleged child predator at Bowling Green – Chacon Language and Science Academy, or you know a child who was abused, contact Paul Hoybjerg to be anonymously added to the growing list of victims. Read the lawsuit here.

Begin the healing process and get the justice your child deserves.
