Legal Options for Victims of Sexual Assault

Attorney contributor, and sexual assault lawyer, Mike Pfau has represented school sex abuse victims and their families in civil lawsuits for years. Bobby has provided some information regarding the legal rights of sexual assaults on a college campus.

"School administration has a legal duty to do everything they can to protect their student body from abuse, whether it is emotional, physical, or sexual. This can include abuse from the school staff as well as fellow students. It is necessary for schools to implement certain security measures to prevent crimes from taking place on the campus. Examples of the ways schools can deter crimes could include surveillance cameras throughout the campus and implementing a sufficient reporting system. If a student falls victim to sexual abuse by a classmate on campus, it is important that a proper investigation takes place documenting all the circumstances surrounding the crime in addition to reporting the crime to law enforcement. It is necessary for perpetrators to be identified and face the consequences in order to prevent further crimes."

"In certain cases, campus sexual crimes can happen as a result of the negligence of the school or school officials. An example would be officials knowing but ignoring misconduct by a suspect. In instances of negligence, victims and their families may have a case for a lawsuit against the school. Victims and their families should seek advice from an experienced sexual assault attorney."
