There is hardly a more trusted and regarded organization on earth than the Boy Scouts of America. However, there has been a dark side of Scout history that involves child sexual abuse against innocent members of the organization. Manly, Stewart & Finaldi is a strong advocate of sexual abuse victims and seeks civil justice against the sex offenders and those who harbor and cover up criminal sexual activities against children.
Children are easy to take advantage of and the Boy Scouts is a perfect environment for sexual predators to engage in sexual abuse against minors. Child molestation is a major crime and those who do not take necessary actions to prevent such behavior are guilty as well.
Following an incident of Boy Scout abuse, contact a California attorney for legal advice and information about the subject of child sexual abuse.
When a child enters a group such as the Boy Scouts, they are supposed to learn valuable life skills such as being honest, working as a team and how to build self-confidence. No parent should ever be faced with a situation where a Scout leader or other adult involved in their troop has taken advantage of their child, but unfortunately, child sexual harassment and sexual abuse are an occurrence within this organization, as it can happen anywhere and in any setting.
If your child has come forward to let you know that they have become a victim of Boy Scout sexual harassment, or you suspect it to be the case, it is important that you protect your family's rights by speaking with a highly competent California lawyer that has extensive experience in building and presenting effective lawsuits against large organizations. You will need to understand what legal options are available to you and a legal advocate can help provide you with the guidance you need to pursue a favorable outcome.
There are two key factors in a case of this nature; aggressively pursuing justice so that a victim and their family can achieve some level of emotional closure as well as stopping this criminal predatory behavior from occurring in the future and protecting other children in the future.
