Second Sexual Abuse Victim Sues San Ramon Valley Unified School District

The law firm of Cerri, Boskovich & Allard has filed an amended lawsuit against the San Ramon Valley Unified School District (Contra Costa County Superior Court), naming a second childhood sexual abuse victim of former teacher Ryan Weible. The new victim, identified in the lawsuit as Jane Doe 2, claims she was inappropriately groomed and sexually battered by Weible in the school year that followed the assault of Jane Doe 1.

 The new lawsuit sheds light on what San Ramon Valley High School administrators knew and their failure to act on multiple complaints. The lawsuit states that at least two adults notified the school about Weible’s inappropriate behavior during the 2011-2012 school year. None of the complaints were properly handled, allowing an emboldened Weible to sexually abuse Jane Doe 1 on school grounds, in the theatre room, the “green room”, his car, his apartment, and in his office. It is alleged in the lawsuit that the school did not begin investigating any of Weible’s inappropriate conduct until April or May of 2012, after San Ramon Police came to the campus during school hours looking for Weible.

 According to the lawsuit, following Jane Doe 1's graduation in 2011, Weible set his eyes on Jane Doe 2. In the 2011-2012 school year, Weible began grooming Jane Doe 2. He told her that he was in love with her and wanted to marry her and have her bypass college so that she could be with him. He also showered her with numerous gifts including jewelry. This grooming led to Weible touching Jane Doe 2 in a sexual manner without her consent. 

 Towards the end of the 2011-2012 school year, Weible confided in Jane Doe 2 that he had a sexual relationship with Jane Doe and that he knew police were coming for him. It was only after police showed up on campus at the end of the 20111-2012 school year that the school began investigating Weible.

 The lawsuit states that the District failed to supervise Weible and to train teachers on how to detect and deter inappropriate grooming behavior by employees, which in this case allowed Weible to engage in grooming behaviors that ultimately led to sexual misconduct with the two minor students.

 In a review of records obtained under the California Public Records Act, the law firm of Cerri, Boskovich & Allard found no evidence that the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC), as required by law, was notified by the District. The failure to notify CTC of suspected sexual misconduct resulted in Weible maintaining his teaching credential and obtaining a job as Assistant Head of School at a prestigious Bay Area K-12 private school.
