At McKenna Law, we understand the serious impact that this type attack can have on someone- both physically and emotionally, and we are here to meet you with compassion and empathy: all while continuing to aggressively fight to ensure justice has been served.
Sexual assault and abuse can take many forms. Rape, nonconsensual sex, and unwanted sexual touchings are just some of the different types of sexual assault that victims may fall pray to. There are other types of sexual abuse that can be just as emotionally traumatizing, including invasion of privacy. Whether it is someone with a “pen camera” or a hidden camera at an AirBnb or clothing store, these violators need to be held accountable and there is nothing more that we want to do than to make sure we bring you justice.
Unfortunately, it is not just individuals that commit these heinous acts and we often have to hold different institutions, corporations or agencies accountable for these acts. From schools to religious organizations to property owners, if these groups played a part in allowing the sexual assault and sexual abuse to occur then we will hold them accountable.
Is Sexual Assault A Criminal or Civl Case?
In a sexual assault matter, both criminal and civil aspects of justice are often pursued simultaneously. Victims of these terrible acts deserve to see their violator feel the full punitive brunt of the criminal justice system, while at the same time deserve to be righteously compensated for their physical and emotional damages through a civil case.
While both civil and criminal cases are often pursued, that is not always the case, and there does not need to be a criminal arrest or conviction in order for a victim to be compensated for their damages. It is very common to be successful in a civil case for sexual assault without there be any involvement with the police or criminal justice system.
