Army Garrison Presidio of Monterey Has a Long History of Sexual Assault
Sadly, you are not alone as a victim of sexual assault at the Presidio. Sexual assault complaints at this base were first publicized in 1987, when more than 60 children were sexually abused at the Army base’s childcare center. Today, the Army has a sexual assault prevention and response program specifically for this garrison. The program has its own hotline available 24/7 to accept complaints regarding sexual assault at (831) 915-2351. The physical location of the office where you can file a complaint is in the Presidio’s Tin Barn building, Room #1.
Compensation for Presidio Sexual Assault Survivors
If you were subjected to sexual assault or abuse at the Presidio, either as a child or adult, you could qualify for financial compensation through a civil lawsuit. While a criminal case against a pedophile or sex abuser can yield its own form of justice through criminal penalties against the defendant, a civil case can give you further justice with a settlement or judgment award. A positive case outcome could result in payment for the following damages, among others:
- Medical expenses (including future therapy needs)
- Lost income from being unable to return to the base to work
- Lost future earning capacity due to mental health reasons
- Travel or transportation costs
- Attorney’s fees and out-of-pocket expenses
- Physical pain and suffering
- Mental anguish and emotional distress
- Psychological trauma from the incident, such as post-traumatic stress disorder
- Lost enjoyment or quality of living
- Wrongful death damages if a loved one took his or her life due to sexual assault at the Presidio
Bringing a civil lawsuit for sexual assault can expose your abuser as well as the institution that failed to keep you safe – the Army or the government. It could help improve safety at the Presidio garrison in Monterey to protect future people from suffering this type of trauma. Finally, it could give you a greater sense of closure and justice as a survivor, which can help you move forward after your traumatic experience.
