 Attorney Robert Allard

 OB Whaley Principal Lyn Vijayendran Charged with Enabling Alleged Child Molester Craig
 Chandler

Online PR News – 10-July-2012 The law firm ofCorsiglia, McMahon & Allard reports that law
                                 –
enforcement authorities are charging OB Whaley Elementary School principal Lyn Vijayendran with failing to
report a child molestation complaint against alleged child molester Craig Chandler. Chandler taught at OB
Whaley Elementary School, Evergreen School District, for nine years. Chandler was arrested in January
2012 and is currently facing charges stemming from the alleged molestation of five children from his second
and third-grade class.

Child molestation victims' rights attorney Robert Allard, of the law firm of Corsiglia, McMahon & Allard in
San Jose, CA, is currently representing the families of children molested by a daycare worker at Trace
Elementary School CDC along with families of children molested by teachers, athletic coaches and a Silicon
Valley executive.

Mr. Allard issued the following statement, "Much like Penn State's Joe Paterno enabled child molester Jerry
Sandusky, OB Whaley's principal appears to have enabled alleged child molester Craig Chandler. As a
community, we need to get to the bottom of this child molestation scandal and find out who knew what and
when did they know it. Hopefully, the victims in this case involving Craig Chandler will come forward and
take whatever steps are necessary to ensure that this does not happen again not only at this but other
schools so that children are protected. The principal had a legal duty to report suspected abuse. If indeed it
is true that Ms. Vijayendran ignored a complaint or complaints, she is as guilty of child molestation as the
predator himself. We enthusiastically support the efforts of the District Attorney to criminally prosecute those
who have harbored pedophiles. The next step is to create tougher laws so the mandatory reporting, and the
resultant criminal consequences, applies to anyone in either the public or private sector who supervise
anyone who has access to children like teachers, counselors, priests and coaches."
