When people hear about child sexual abuse, they immediately assume that the horrific act was performed by an adult on a child. While this generally is true, there are more and more cases of children sexually abused by other kids. Sadly, it is happening right here in Sarasota, and parents need to be aware of it.

Child sex abuse can occur anywhere and at anytime. Sadly, it can happen even at school—where parents send their children to learn in a safe environment. Recently, Mallard Perez was hired to represent a child who was forced to submit to oral sex by another child during play time at school. Unfortunately, the teachers who were supposed to be watching the kids play weren’t doing their jobs. Because this shocking act can occur even in Florida schools, parents need to talk to their children and make sure they understand the difference between a good touch and a bad touch.

If your child has been abused by another kid or adult, you need an attorney on your side who has previously represented children and families in similar situations. To speak with an attorney about your case, contact us for a free consultation at 888-409-3805 or online at
