Types of Sexual Abuse
Sexual abuse rises to the level of criminal activity. The District Attorney and the police will handle the prosecution of the alleged perpetrator. In addition to the criminal aspect, the victim may well be able to seek compensation in the civil system, regardless of whether the perpetrator has been found guilty or not in a criminal trial, and regardless of whether criminal charges were even filed. A lawsuit in a civil court won’t involve jail, or other criminal penalties, but it does involve financial compensation.

We'll Help You Seek Justice
The White Plains Sexual Abuse Lawyers at Worby Vecchio Edelman can help you seek justice. Suing a sexual predator for monetary damages has its own advantages over and above the possibility of financial compensation. In a criminal case, the defendant has a constitutional right to not testify at a trial. That right may not exist in a civil case, where a defendant can be required to testify, both at a trial, and at a pre-trial deposition, assuming that the criminal case has been resolved. Having an opportunity to face a perpetrator in Court where the perpetrator is required to testify can have a therapeutic effect upon a victim of that defendant’s conduct.
