Does Your Child Attend Elizabethtown Middle School in Lancaster County PA, Where Megan Carlise Was Employed?


Who is Megan Carlise?

Megan Carlise was a paraprofessional at the Elizabethtown Middle School in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.  The 37-year-old worked as an ISS (in-school suspension) classroom aide until she was fired after being recently arrested for using her educational position to prey upon at least one known student. Megan Carlise was arrested and accused of sexually assaulting a 15-year-old boy in the classroom on multiple occasions, online, and in her vehicle. A new allegation from a 14-year-old child also came out.

Carlisle allegedly began sending sexually explicit photos to the child and his 16-year-old friend over the commonly used app Snapchat. SnapChat verified the explicit content came from Carlise’s phone number. The evidence is now a part of the investigation and charges against her. 

Megan Carlisle has been charged with involuntary deviant sexual intercourse, unlawful contact with a minor, statutory sexual assault, institutional sexual assault, dissemination of sexual materials to minors, and corruption of minors.

She is in Lancaster County Prison on $200,000 bail. 

What we know to be true of child sexual offenders is where there is one victim, there usually are more. The police are urging other victims to come forward.

You are not alone.

How Can A Civil Lawsuit Help Victims Seek Justice For The Trauma They Experienced At The Hands Of Megan Carlise?

There are many misunderstandings about why a survivor of sexual abuse would choose to file a civil lawsuit.   Child sexual abuse takes away so much from the survivors and families impacted. Our society still struggles to find ways to repair the harm done by individual perpetrators and institutions that have covered up child sexual abuse.  Outdated statutes of limitations across our country leave far too many survivors denied access to our criminal or civil justice courts.

Filing a civil case can be an essential step for survivors and their families in their journey to slowly rebuild their lives and create pathways to healing.  Motivation for filing a civil suit is often questioned and unfairly stereotyped as being “all about money. Filing a civil lawsuit can cast survivors as “money hungry” and is weaponized to shame and blame them even more. This couldn’t be further from the truth for survivors of child sexual abuse. The civil justice system offers victims more than just monetary benefits.  It gives survivors access to justice, validation, exposure, confrontation, and ultimately some resolution. The resolution allows survivors of sexual abuse to understand and process what happened and create a new path forward without confusion, questions, and fear.
