Holding Perpetrators Accountable
A sexual abuser may be held criminally liable for his or her behavior, but he or she may also face civil damages as well. Attorney DeGelleke understands that no amount of compensation can make up for the harm that abuse victims have had to suffer. However, when individuals and their employers, such as schools, churches and other organizations are ordered to pay a financial settlement, it helps to send a message that these acts will not be tolerated and can force an institution to ensure that adequate safety measures are in place.
