Student-Teacher Relationships in Maryland
The promising career of an up-and-coming teacher or a highly respected veteran educator can come to a sudden end when he/she is accused of having a sexual relationship with a student. Those allegations carry with them an immediate social stigma. Outraged peers and parents often make immediate judgments before a trial or verdict. Students may believe that as a person of authority, you broke a bond of trust.

Taking an interest in the educational development of one student struggling with a certain subject usually results in praise for an educator. However, when that student makes accusations of a sexual relationship or inappropriate touching, that praise turns into assumptions of guilt coupled with a social stigma as a sexual predator abusing a mentorship role.
Whether you are under investigation or have been charged with a sex offense, you need immediate legal counsel to protect your rights. The end of a career is only the beginning of the severe penalties you face if charged with this serious crime. You can lose not only your teaching license, but also your freedom. In addition, you may be required to register as a sex offender for the rest of your life.
