Deadline August 2021


Charles Goode was a dance teacher at New York City Public School 85. In 1979, Goode sexually abused a male student who was only 9 years old at the time. The abuse began when Charles Goode unjustifiably sent the student to detention, which he supervised. During detention, and eventually at all hours of the school day, Goode would hug,
kiss and grab the student’s body. Eventually, Goode moved past mere inappropriate kissing and groping. Goode would repeatedly sodomize his student and force the boy to perform oral sex on him. From the student’s recollection, Goode abused him on school grounds more than fifty times.

The abuse escalated even further. Charles Goode would often force his student to smoke marijuana and drink alcohol in an attempt to condition and groom the student into acceptance of his abuse.

The abuse was repeatedly reported to school officials, yet nothing was done to help this poor victim.

Merson Law PLLC has reason to believe that this student was not the only victim of Charles Goode. In fact, there are likely dozens more victims still out there.

We are searching for these victims in hopes that they come forward now to claim the justice they deserve, as there is limited time to act.

How the Child Victims Act can help Victims of Charles Goode

New York State passed a law known as the Child Victims Act, which created a one-year window for civil suits brought by former child victims, allowing them to make cases against their abusers.

The one-year window was supposed to end in 2020, but due to court strains during the COVID-19 pandemic, the window was extended an additional year.

The Child Victims Act Look-Back Window ENDS on August 14, 2021
