A sex abuse charge stems from the act of forcefully attempting to have some form of sexual act on another without their consent. It can also occur from someone in a position of trust taking advantage of a minor or an adult who depends on them, such as a boss or caretaker. Frequently in today’s society, we have minors being molested by those who should be trusted, such as priests, pastors, bus drivers, foster parents, and others. Not only can that person be held liable, but if the organization where the abuser worked was aware of the abuse and took no action, they could be held liable as well.
If you or a family member has suffered from sexual abuse, contact Bartley E. Herron from Herron Law, immediately to find out what your legal options are to protect your rights. Those responsible for the abuse must be held accountable, and with the caring assistance of our legal team, we will pursue those who committed the crime as well as those who should have been aware of the behavior and failed to take action to prevent it.
If you have been the victim of sex abuse from a spouse or partner, our legal team can also assist with obtaining a restraining order against that person to protect you from any further harm.
