Can I Sue for Incidents of Sexual Abuse at Kern Crossroads Facility?

Yes, you can file a lawsuit for being sexually abused while you were an inmate at Kern Crossroads Facility in Bakersfield. We have seen an increasing number of these lawsuits in the past few years, and this is due to the bravery of many victims who spoke out against the neglect and abuse that is rampant at youth detention centers in California.

While the person that abused you is directly responsible, vicarious liability is often shared by the entities that are in charge of inmate security at a juvenile detention facility. Sadly, we know for a fact that juvenile hall administrators and the agency in charge of these places breach their duty of care to inmates on a consistent basis.

Even when there is clear evidence of child abuse, like the incident at Camp Kilpatrick in Malibu, it can take years for the county probation department to fire the offenders or take other actions to ensure that kids are safe. In fact, it’s more likely that they will cover up for these staff members and bribe or threaten the victim into silence. If the accusations can no longer be ignored, they will play a game of “passing the trash,” where sexual predators are transferred from one location to another.

In short, there are many cases of negligence and misconduct that put juvenile inmates at risk of sexual abuse. Though it can be disheartening to realize how deep the problem goes, we will not stop in our fight to bring justice to those who are sexually assaulted or harassed during their stay at Kern Crossroads Facility.

Statute of Limitations to Sue Kern Crossroads Facility for Sexual Abuse

Normally, how long you have for a lawsuit for child sexual abuse is based on the date of your 40th birthday, as you have 22 years from turning 18 to file a compensation claim. But this is not the only standard that you can go by if you would like to sue for being sexually abused by a juvenile hall staff member.

As you are probably aware, children tend to repress traumatic incidents like sexual assault because they lack the knowledge and life experience to seek help from the police, a therapist, etc. Instead, they keep these memories to themselves and do their best to forget about the abuse. But doing so almost always results in mental health issues that affect many areas of their lives. Some of these people do not get help for these issues until they are much older, and this is when they realize how badly they were hurt by one or more incidents of sexual abuse.

Under California law, the discovery of injuries past the age of 40 gives you 5 years in which to file a lawsuit for childhood sexual abuse. If you would like more information on the discovery rule and how it affects your right to sue Kern Crossroads Facility, please contact our office.
