Legal Recourse For Victims Sexually Assaulted by Correctional Officer

Attorney contributor Brian Kent helps sex abuse victims get justice by filing civil lawsuits. Brian recently discussed the available legal options for victims sexually assaulted by a correctional officer in prison.

"Prisons give a lot of power to the correctional officer so they can effectively maintain the prison system while keeping inmates safe. Unfortunately, there have been many reports of correctional officers abusing this power by assaulting inmates. It is the duty of the prison to implement a security plan to prevent a sexual assault upon their inmates. This plan may include vetting all staff by conducting background checks, installing working security cameras throughout the prison property, and by reporting and investigating any incidents of misconduct."

"When a correctional officer is arrested for sexual assault, it is critical the victim is made aware of their legal rights and options for justice. Reporting the misconduct to law enforcement a criminal investigation would allow the perpetrator to be charged and sentenced. However, victims may have sufficient reasons to file a civil lawsuit in many cases. The prison could also be held accountable if the perpetrator was hired without a background check or ignored previous reports of misconduct. Victims of prison sexual assault are encouraged to seek the aid of an experienced sexual assault lawyer in order to explore their best choice of legal action."
