According to a U.S. Department of Justice report, youth residents of juvenile hall facilities are subject to high rates of sexual abuse by both adult staff and other inmates – and the problem is particularly severe in Maryland. Unfortunately, the perpetrators of the abuse and facility staff that fail to protect children are rarely held accountable.
However, a new Maryland law may allow survivors of sexual abuse to file a civil lawsuit regardless of when the abuse took place. We believe that perpetrators of sexual abuse and the institutions that enable them should be held accountable. We can help you file a civil claim and seek justice for what happened to you.
