What is Sexual Abuse?

Sexual Abuse is the unlawful or non-consensual touching of one person’s body, most commonly private sexual parts, by another human being. It includes, but is not limited to actions such as rape, sodomy, oral copulation, fondling private parts, and even kissing.

Sexual abuse of anyone (adult or child) is a crime and is punishable by imprisonment and fines. The type of punishment depends on the nature of the incident(s), the particulars of the facts, and the government’s ability to prove the offender’s guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.

Criminal prosecution of a sexual abuser is not the only remedy. There are civil remedies for money damages that the victim suffers. Medical and psychiatric bills, lost income, emotional trauma, the suffering of you and (sometimes your spouse) may be compensable.

Call us before making a statement or signing any settlement form. Before you make a statement to an insurance company representative or sign any type of settlement agreement, contact us to arrange a free confidential consultation with an attorney regarding your sexual abuse case.
