Sexual Abuse Charges Filed Against Dartmouth Middle School Music Teacher Samuel Neipp

San Jose Dartmouth Middle School teacher Samuel Neipp is facing numerous sexual abuse charges following his arrest. Allegations include using his position of authority to molest at least two students and of the blackmail of one of the students. He allegedly threatened to post nude photographs of the 13-year-old girl unless she kept the sexual abuse a secret.

Samuel Neipp allegedly molested the two girls over a number of years starting when they were both 13. One of the victims is now 16. The other victim is 20. She alleges that the abuse by Samuel Neipp lasted for about two years.

Educator Sexual Misconduct

This case is the continuation of a disturbing pattern involving educator sexual misconduct and the reason why the law firm of Cerri, Boskovich & Allard has represented in either an official or unofficial capacity well over 100 clients who as children are sexual abuse victims.

Samuel Neipp reportedly worked full-time as a music teacher at Dartmouth Middle School, starting in 2010. He also worked as an assistant band director at Branham High School and music teacher at Del Mar High School.

Based on the severity of the alleged crimes, prosecutors are seeking prison time of more than 100 years. The sentence is in line with the seriousness of the crime. For example, the law firm of Cerri, Boskovich & Allard represented the parents of children sexually abused by former Morgan Hill teacher John Loyd. He is serving a 40-year sentence for molesting the students, which is effectively a life sentence for the 53-year-old teacher. The school district agreed to pay the children $8.25 million following a lawsuit filed by Cerri, Boskovich & Allard.

A Premier Law Firm for Sex Abuse Victims

The law firm of Cerri, Boskovich & Allard helps child molestation victims receive financial compensation for the sexual abuse harm by using the civil justice system. The civil justice system remains the best way for the victim and their family to receive justice. It provides the financial means to offset the costs of a lifetime of psychological and physical treatment. A civil lawsuit has the added benefit of obtaining compensation through the private sector (school insurance). Without holding schools accountable, victims end up relying on the public sector (taxpayers) for help.
