Standing With Victims Of Sexual Abuse And Assault
When appalling cases of rape, sexual assault and sexual abuse come to light, media accounts often focus on the offender and any criminal prosecution. While holding sexual predators criminally accountable for the extreme harm they do is vital, it is often equally important for victims to take action in civil court. Success in litigation can provide a measure of closure. It can also yield financial compensation enabling innocent victims to heal and move forward in life.
