The Lasting Effects of Misconduct of a Minor

No matter the reason that you ended up detained at a juvenile hall, you were a child, and you should have been kept safe during your time at the juvenile hall facility. Misconduct towards a minor is known to have lasting physical, mental, and emotional effects. The most obvious effects are always physical; physical harm resulting from misconduct towards a minor can include injuries to genitals, injuries to reproductive organs, sexually transmitted infections, unwanted pregnancies, fractures, lacerations, etc. Mental and emotional effects can include post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, depression, fear, etc. In addition, victims of misconduct towards a minor are at an increased risk of drug use as well as of suicide.

Do I Have the Right to Sue if I experienced misconduct towards a minor at a Juvenile Hall in California?

Yes – you could have the right to file a lawsuit. If the facility was operated by a city, county, or state agency, then you could sue the agency directly. This is because these facilities are supposed to be safe for all detained youth. Operating entities have the duty to ensure that these facilities remain safe – they must ensure that they are subjecting employees to background checks, properly training employees, properly supervising employees and detainees, and actually addressing reports of misconduct towards a minor . Unfortunately, youth detained at juvenile hall facilities are often overlooked just based on the fact that they are detained. However, no matter the reason that youth is detained (whether it is because of committing a crime, awaiting a court date or adjudication, or simply waiting for a foster placement), these facilities should remain a safe place for all.

If you have further questions about your right to file a juvenile hall misconduct lawsuit, contact the experts here at our law firm today. Our California juvenile hall misconduct lawyers are ready to help you every step of the way.

The Average Value of Misconduct Cases against Juvenile Halls

What is the average value of misconduct cases against juvenile hall facilities? Misconduct towards a minor cases are typically high-value cases that can range anywhere from $1 million to $7.5 million – in some cases, settlement values go well above this range. Ultimately, the value of a claim is based on many factors, including the type of misconduct suffered, the resulting harm, whether the harm was permanent or had lasting effects (including physical, mental, and emotional effects), and whether the incident was covered up. In California, victims can be awarded triple damages if it is determined that their incident was covered up.

A Recent Incident Leads to a Push to Close Youth Facilities

Just hours after an 18-year-old was found dead of an apparent overdose at Barry J. Nidorf Juvenile Hall in Sylmar, the California Board of State and Community Corrections, a state oversight agency issued a report calling for the county’s juvenile halls to be closed. The agency issued a nine-page report, which highlighted multiple issues with the juvenile halls, including that the Probation Department continues to fail to adequately staff the youth halls, continues to hold youth in isolation for longer than allowed by state guidelines, fails to meet state requirements related to the use of force, fails to perform the required safety checks on youths held in isolation, and entirely failed to implement the corrective action plan that was designed to improve conditions in the facility.

This is just the latest example of how the Probation Department has failed to keep detained youth safe in their facilities. Drugs are an additional danger at these facilities, in addition to the danger of violence and misconduct.

Even if these facilities are ultimately closed down, victims and their families could still have grounds to file a lawsuit. For more information about the legal options available to you and your family, we recommend that you seek legal assistance with the experts here at our law firm as soon as possible. Our legal team is more than ready to guide you every step of the way.
