BIRMINGHAM, Ala. –Five victims have filed a class action lawsuit against former Shelby County teacher Daniel Acker, Jr. and the Shelby County School Board.

The 40-page claim was filed on Friday in Birmingham’s Federal Court.

Acker pleaded guilty last year to sexually abusing half a dozen girls while teaching in the Shelby County School System.

One of victims, Kristin Lopez, claimed that Acker fondled her in 1991 while he was her fourth-grade teacher.

The Shelby County Grand Jury refused to indict Acker.

Then, despite the allegations, the Shelby County School Board decided to allow Acker to remain in the classroom.

Over the next two decades, Acker allegedly admitted to authorities that he violated multiple female students after the Lopez’s original complaint.

We will have more on the class action lawsuit shortly.
