Lawsuit filed against Baltimore teacher accused of sexually abusing student

Lawsuit filed against Baltimore teacher accused of sexually abusing student

BALTIMORE (WBFF) - There's legal action in the case of a teacher accused of sexually abusing a student.

Ryan Penalver, who taught at Saint Frances Academy in east Baltimore, was arrested earlier this month.

He faces charges of sexually harassing and abusing a student who came to him looking for emotional support.

On Wednesday, FOX45 learned that the student's lawyer has filed a class action lawsuit on her behalf, and for other students who may also have been abused.

"It's truly disgusting when someone in a position of trust and authority takes advantage of a child, and these are children," said the attorney.

The lawsuit names Penalver, Saint Frances Academy and the Catholic Archdiocese of Baltimore as defendants.
