Can I Sue For Being Sexually Assaulted By a Deputy?

Attorney contributor Bobby Thompson helps sex abuse victims get justice by filing prison sexual assault lawsuits in California. Bobby recently discussed the legal options available for victims sexually assaulted while in jail or prison.

"There is a legal obligation for jails and prisons to ensure the safety of their inmates. It is their duty to put in place a plan to prevent sexual assault by other inmates or staff. This plan may include vetting all staff by conducting background checks, monitoring surveillance cameras throughout the prison property, and reporting and investigating any incidents of misconduct."

"It is crucial that the victim of prison sexual assault is aware of their legal rights and options for justice. A criminal investigation will be done if law enforcement is informed of the incident. This can lead to the predator being charged but more options may be available for the victims. Many times victims have grounds to file a civil lawsuit against a third party due to negligent security. If an experienced attorney can prove the assault may have been prevented by the jail or prison, a civil suit may be filed. To fully explore ones legal rights, victims of sexual assault in jail or prison should speak to an experienced sexual assault lawyer."
