New lawsuit: Third child allegedly sexually assaulted by former CCSD employee



A lawsuit states that a former Charleston County School District specialist who worked with high-risk children sexually assaulted and threatened at least three children and had over 12,000 images of pornography and child pornography on his district-issued laptop.

According to attorneys representing the victims, the school district and law enforcement should have known that Marvin Gethers was a threat to children at the elementary school he was employed.

Gethers died in 2017, according to the lawsuit it was in part due to complications of HIV.

The lawsuit was filed against Charleston County School District, Charleston County Sheriff’s Office and North Charleston on Wednesday.

Gethers worked at Matilda F. Dunston Elementary in North Charleston as a specialist who worked with high-risk children.

According the lawsuit, pornography was found on Gethers’ laptop in 2014. He remained at the school until 2016. That’s when attorneys believe he assaulted three children.

“During those 23 months, he sodomized physically assaulted and sexually assaulted at least three young boys,” says Victim’s attorney, Mark Peper.
