Teacher Accused of Making Porn & Sodomy

     FRESNO, Calif. (CN) – A sixth-grade teacher sodomized a boy and took pornographic photos of him during sleepovers at the teacher’s house, the boy and his mother claim in court.
     The boy, Minor S., and his Mother M. sued David Blancas, Monson-Sultana Joint Union Elementary School District and the Tulare County Board of Education, in Superior Court.
     Minor S. claims that Blancas forced him “to give and receive anal sex without protection” when S. was 11.
     Blancas was arrested after another boy claimed that Blancas had forced him into “hundreds of instances of forced oral sex, including one instance on a school bus late at night at a school function,” according to the lawsuit.
     Minor S.’s plight began when he entered Blancas’ sixth-grade class in 2010 at Monson-Sultana School in Orosi. S. joined the basketball team, which increased his contact with Blancas, who was also the athletic director, according to the complaint.
     Blancas offered S. a ride home during the first month of that academic year, and soon was picking him up from home and driving him to school, according to the complaint.
     “Plaintiff’s mother was a single parent and was not opposed to defendant Blancas serving as a male role model for plaintiff, especially given the teacher-student, and coach-player relationship that developed,” the complaint states.
     The mother says that during an argument with her son, she called Blancas, “given the role-model relationship between her son and defendant Blancas, to see if he could help.”
     Blancas offered to bring the boy to his house to play with his dogs. At Blancas’ house, they watched movies until S. fell asleep on the couch. Blancas invited him over again the next weekend to “sleep over,” the mother says in the complaint.
     “Plaintiff contends they went back to defendant’s house to watch movies and play video games. While they watched movies, defendant made plaintiff lie on the couch between defendant’s legs. Plaintiff fell asleep and awoke to the feeling of defendant’s hands resting on plaintiff’s chest underneath his shirt. Plaintiff felt uncomfortable at the time but did not say anything because he was scared and given the fact that defendant Blancas was his sixth grade teacher.
     “Plaintiff contends in the weeks following, the inappropriate conduct continued to escalate where defendant would pull plaintiff’s pants down while plaintiff was sleeping and take pictures of his penis, grab and stroke plaintiff’s penis, and force plaintiff to touch defendant Blancas’ penis. Shortly thereafter, defendant performed oral sex on plaintiff and forced plaintiff to give and receive anal sex without protection,” the lawsuit states.
     Minor S. also claims that Blancas made him “remove his clothing and perform sexual acts while being photographed.”
     The sexual abuse continued until March 2012, when Blancas was arrested after another victim came forward, alleging that Blancas had sexually abused him from 2000 until 2003, according to the complaint.
     A police search of Blancas’ home revealed “numerous CDs with digital photographs of plaintiff in various stages of undress, performing sexual acts,” according to the lawsuit.
     Minor S. and his mother claim that the Monson-Sultana School and Tulare County Board of Education “should have known about defendant Blancas’ sexual abuse of an underage Monson-Sultana student between 2000 and 2003, where on at least one occasion, defendant Blancas had oral sex with the student on a school bus after a school function. Despite such knowledge, defendants ignored and failed to investigate or remedy defendant Blancas’ conduct in any way, thereby placing students at risk of harm.”
     The plaintiffs seek punitive damages for assault, battery, invasion of privacy, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and negligent hiring.
     They are represented by Brian S. Kabateck with Kabateck Brown Kellner in Los Angeles.
