Can I Sue for Being Sexually Assaulted by Correctional Officer?

Attorney contributor Bobby Thompson is a sexual assault lawyer experienced in representing sex abuse victims and their families in civil lawsuits. Bobby has kindly shared his knowledge on filing a sex abuse lawsuit for victims abused by a correctional officer.

"Correctional officers are trusted professionals who tend to gain respect from those around them based on their positions. Sadly, many do not expect them to violate their trust, especially through horrible crimes, including sexual abuse. While most correctional officers can be trusted, but there have been cases of them using their position of power to sexually abuse victims."

"If a correctional officer is charged with sexual abuse, it's important that the victim is aware of their legal rights and available options for recourse. Reporting the abuse to law enforcement for a criminal investigation is a critical step. However, in many cases, victims might have grounds for a sexual abuse lawsuit in civil court. The prison the officer employed at could also be held liable if they employed the perpetrator without first conducting a background check or ignoring previous reports of misconduct. Victims and their families are advised to seek the guidance of an experienced sexual assault lawyer to explore their next choice of action."
