Cloud Roofing Owner Charged with Sexual Assault

Lawyer Comments: In the second part of this story, sexual assault victim lawyer Marc Lenahan discusses a common question for victims - can I sue for being sexually assaulted?

The owner of Cloud Roofing in San Antonio has been arrested for allegedly sexually assaulting a woman during a fake job interview at the business. 67-year-old Kenneth Cloud faces one count of sexual assault.

According to the arrest warrant affidavit, a 30-year-old woman went to Cloud Roofing in the 400 block of Breesport Road for a job interview she saw on Craigslist. After arriving, Cloud allegedly offered to give her a massage and then sexually assaulted her in an upstairs room in the office building.

The victim reportedly told police that she told Cloud to stop at first but then allowed the assault to continue because she was "desperate for work", had recently been fired from a previous job, and did not qualify for unemployment benefits.

Cloud reportedly stopped the assault after a second woman arrived at the office for a job interview. According to the police, employees told officers that they were not currently hiring.

Cloud has been charged with second-degree felony sexual assault. Police are concerned that there could be more victims.

Lawsuits For Sexual Assault Victims

Sexual assault lawyer Marc Lenahan helps victims explore their legal options and find justice through civil lawsuits. We've asked Marc to add some commentary on the legal rights of sexual assault victims:

Sexual assault victims have legal rights in both the criminal justice system and civil courts. For many victims, seeing the perpetrator arrested, prosecuted, and incarcerated is a key part of finding justice. However, the criminal justice system does not always directly address the needs of victims. In many cases, victims can find the financial support they deserve by filing a civil lawsuit.

Civil lawsuits can be filed directly against sexual predators or against negligent third parties, such as a business that failed to run background checks on employees. Each case is unique and determining whether you have a case for a lawsuit will require legal guidance.
