Kristen Cunnane, 30, of Walnut Creek, sued the Moraga School District and three former administrators on Tuesday for their alleged negligence in reporting her being a victim of sexual abuse by two of their former teachers. The three retired administrators named in the lawsuit are former Joaquin Moraga Intermediate School principal Bill Walters, former assistant principal Paul Simonin and former superintendent John Cooley.
Cunnane was raped by her former Joaquin Moraga P.E. teacher, Julie Correa. Correa is currently serving an eight-year prison sentence for her actions. Cunnane was also sexually abused by her Joaquin Moraga science teacher, Dan Witters. Witters committed suicide shortly after i accusations against him came to the surface in 1996.
Cunnane has said that she is hoping the lawsuit will continue to bring about changes in the district that will ensure a similar situation won’t happen again.
