California Boy Scout Sexual Abuse Attorney
Were you or a loved one sexually abused while in the Boy Scouts in California?
Recent media attention has been placed on the Boy Scouts of America as accusations of abuse and allowing abuse to go unpunished have come to light. The Boy Scouts of America is an association with a long and decorated history of providing activities, moral guidance and support to boys from very young up through older teenagers. Unfortunately many boys and men have come forward to report that they were sexually abused when they were a part of the Boy Scouts.
Private records that were unavailable until recently indicate that a huge number of scout leaders and scout masters have been dismissed due to allegations of sexual abuse in past and recent years. Boy Scout leaders were previously allowed to take out a group of scouts alone – with no other supervision. Camping trips, adventure outings and other situations were perfect situations where sexual predators could molest and abuse the young scouts.
The California sexual abuse lawyers at the Zalkin Law Firm are dedicated to providing legal representation to boys, teens and men who have been sexually abused in the Boy Scouts by a scout leader or scout master.
California Boy Scout Sexual Abuse Lawyer
Child molesters and sexual predators are known for their tactics they use in order to keep their criminally punishable acts a secret. Many individuals who suffered sexual abuse while in the Boy Scouts were unable to come forward and accuse their abusers until years after the abuse occurred. These predators often instill fear, guilt or other emotions into their prey in order to maintain silence. Others were known to give money, gifts or other “rewards” to get the children to keep quiet about the abuse.
No matter what your sexual abuse situation involved, you can get the legal help you need. The individual who abused you must be held accountable and liable for the physical and/or emotional trauma inflicted upon you.
