Empowerment: spotlighting, holding sex abusers accountable

It is sad, though hardly surprising, that sexual abuse victims in California and nationally often fear coming forward to demand accountability and justice in the wake of crimes committed against them. Victims are often young and vulnerable when perpetrators act. Sexual criminals rely upon that fact and the likelihood that it will breed continued silence rather than a public accusation.

There is frequently a stark imbalance in the forced interaction between sexual abuse victims and offenders. We prominently note that on our website at the established victims’ advocacy law firm of J. Lewis & Associates in Riverside. We stress therein that abuse is often inflicted by “individuals in a position of power.”

That is certainly no secret to the general public. Stories spotlighting misconduct by clerics, teachers, coaches, medical professionals and mentors are distressingly familiar these days. They underscore a problem of epic concern.

Ironically, there is an upside to that, namely this: The outcomes in many sex abuse cases have great educative value, especially for the empowering message they send to victims.

That is this: Coming forward to identify a wrongdoer and seek justice (even years after abuse has occurred) can be an uplifting experience of life-altering scope. Working with a strong and empathetic legal team can yield positive results via a civil lawsuit that confer a deeply meaningful and broad-based remedy.

We duly stress that at our firm. We note on our website that stepping forward with supportive help to spotlight abuse and demand accountability from an abuser in court can help a victim “to move forward from such a traumatizing experience.”

Proven and compassionate victims’ rights attorneys proudly play a role in promoting that just outcome.
