Our Attorneys are Investigating Alleged Acts of Child Molestation by a Teacher’s Aide at ReJoyce Christian School in Hainesport, NJ

The New Jersey sexual abuse victims’ lawyers at Laffey, Bucci & Kent are currently investigating alleged acts of child molestation at a pre-school in Hainesport, New Jersey.

The firm currently represents multiple families whose children have come forward with reports of sexual abuse by the same perpetrator, a teacher’s aide at the ReJoyce Christian School. Firm founder Brian Kent is a former sex crimes unit prosecutor who has spent the last decade championing the legal rights of crime victims, including sex abuse victims. Mr. Kent helps victims of sexual abuse and assault navigate the criminal court system while also protecting their interests in any civil claims.

The ReJoyce Christian School is affiliated with the Saint Paul’s Evangelical Lutheran Church in Hainesport, Burlington County. The school runs a pre-school program for young children aged 2-6 which includes morning, afternoon and after-school programs. The teacher’s aide in question is also the son of the director of the school. Local law enforcement has been notified and a criminal investigation is underway.

At a parents’ meeting in December 2016, the Church’s pastor informed parents that the teacher’s aide had been accused of inappropriate contact with children in 2014 and was not supposed to have any unsupervised contact with children.
