Perpetrators

Matthew Stegeman, 52, is facing multiple counts of indecency with a child by sexual contact after being accused of inappropriately touching a 7-year-old student at Klein ISD’s Epps Island Elementary School in September 2023. Prosecutors said in the last few weeks, more victims have come forward. The 7- and 8-year-old victims are alleging they were also inappropriately touched by Stegeman at school. At Andreozzi + Foote, we understand the gravity of such situations and are committed to providing legal support to victims seeking justice.

Encouraging Matthew Stegeman Victims to Come Forward:

Victims come forward for various reasons: to protect others, seek justice, and begin healing. Rarely do offenders such as this only act once; typically, there is a pattern of behavior, resulting in more victims. From ensuring personal safety to legal accountability and accessing vital support services, many benefits come from disclosure.

Protection and Safety:

Disclosing sexual abuse is a crucial step towards ensuring the immediate protection and safety of the child. Learn how prompt intervention by authorities helps prevent further victimization and protects other potential targets.

Legal Accountability:
When victims initiate a process that holds perpetrators accountable for their actions, it allows them to seek justice and prevent future harm.
Access to Support Services:

Disclosing abuse opens doors to a comprehensive network of support services, including counseling and therapy. These are essential resources available to aid in the emotional and psychological recovery of the child.

Preventing Long-Term Effects:

Addressing abuse early on can mitigate potential long-term psychological and emotional effects. Early intervention significantly improves a child’s chances of overcoming the challenges associated with abuse.

Breaking the Silence and Stigma:

Coming forward can challenge the stigma associated with sexual abuse. When victims break the silence surrounding these crimes, it fosters awareness and encourages others to speak out.

Empowerment and Regaining Control:

Disclosing abuse allows victims to regain control over their lives. It can begin a journey toward healing and reclaiming agency and self-worth.

Community Safety:

Reporting abuse ensures that authorities are aware of potential risks within the community. This can aid in implementing preventive measures and safeguards, creating a safer environment for all.
