Legal Options of Victims Abused Sexually by a Police Office

Attorney contributor Bobby Thompson is an experienced sexual assault lawyer and has worked with numerous victims of sexual assault in civil lawsuits. Below, Bobby shares his insight on police sexual misconduct and the legal options of victims abused by a police officer.

"In the United States, citizens place their trust into the police to care for them and ensure their safety. Police officers are expected to prevent crime and enforce the laws. Unfortunately, police officers have been reported for sexual abuse both on and off the job across the country. The victims of police sexual assault should know their legal options."

"When a victim of abuse reports a police officer, it will result in the investigation into the officer and their history. In sexual assault cases, victims and their families should know they may have grounds for a lawsuit against the police department regarding negligence. In police officer sexual abuse cases, the officer's employer may be deemed liable for the abuse due to negligence. An example of negligence is if misconduct was reported but ignored through previous complaints. Victims of police sexual abuse should secure the services of an experienced sexual assault attorney and learn all their legal options."
