Glenwood Country Day School Shut Down Amid Abuse Allegations


What is happening at Glenwood Country Day School?

Glenwood Country Day School in Howard County, Maryland, shut down by the State of Maryland. 31-year-old Dameon Patterson, an employee, was arrested for second-degree rape and sexual assault of a minor. The small, private school is shut down due to its failure to notify state authorities that Patterson is being criminally investigated. Allegations suggest Patterson sexually abused this child over two years, the entire length of Patterson’s employment with the school. Patterson frequently took children on field trips.

How Can A Civil Lawsuit Help Victims Seek Justice For The Trauma They May Have Experienced at Glenwood Country Day School?

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.

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 “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 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.
