Juvenile detention centers are supposed to take care of youths who have been charged with a variety of offenses.

Unfortunately, sexual abuse incidents are very common at juvenile halls in California, which is why so many of them have closed over the years.

Can I Sue if I was Sexually Abused at Madera County Juvenile Detention Facility?

Yes, you have the right to sue for sexual abuse that you were subjected to by a staff member at Madera County Juvenile Detention Facility. We want to stress that under California law, any interaction between adults and minors for the purpose of sexual gratification to the adult is child sexual abuse. That’s why it’s irrelevant whether you said no or you were forced into performing a sex act. As long as you were under 18, i.e., a minor at the time of the incident, you are a victim of sexual abuse during childhood.

These lawsuits are generally filed against the person that sexually abused you, but the situation is much more complicated when you are a juvenile inmate. There are many people who are responsible for your safety, which includes protecting from sexual assault and harassment. If you are abused by a staff member, immediate action should be taken to investigate the incident and ensure that you are not subjected to further acts of abuse.

Sadly, it’s a well-known fact that county probation departments ignore sexual assault allegations. Many of them find ways to hide evidence and keep the victim from going to the authorities. They also go to great lengths to protect the abuser, even if it means sending them to another detention center where they can start their cycle of exploitation and traumatize a whole new set of children.

When there are sexual abuse complaints at a juvenile hall, it’s not just the predatory staff member that can be sued by the victim. To see if you qualify for a lawsuit against the Madera County Probation Department, contact a juvenile hall sexual abuse lawyer at our office.

Madera County Juvenile Detention Facility Sexual Abuse Class Action Lawsuit

Victims of sexual assault and harassment at juvenile halls are generally aware that there are many other inmates who are dealing with the same predicament. Frankly, there’s no way to avoid the fact that child sexual abuse has been going on for decades at just about every juvenile hall and camp program in California. With the potential for thousands of victims from the same facility, it may be in your best interest to join a class action lawsuit for sexual abuse at Madera County Juvenile Detention Facility.

If you wish to be part of a juvenile hall class action claim, we can take care of the associated paperwork and provide you with the representation you need and deserve. The first step is to contact our office and schedule time to speak with a sexual abuse class action lawyer.

How Long Do I have to File a Lawsuit?

You have until the age of 40, or 22 years from when you turn 18 if you wish to sue Madera County Juvenile Detention Facility for sexual abuse. This is a generous amount of time to file a lawsuit, but then again, you have probably come across news stories of lawsuits that were filed by older individuals.

In cases involving the sexual abuse of a minor, California law recognizes that it can take many years before the victim understands the emotional and/or physical impact of what they went through. And many of the former inmates that contact us are well into their 40s, 50s, or 60s by the time they go to a therapist and discover how their current suffering is related to the abuse they suffered at a juvenile detention center. This is why victims are given 5 years from when they discover an injury related to sexual abuse for a lawsuit against Madera County Juvenile Detention Facility.

Don’t hesitate to call us if you need more information on the 5-year discovery rule for child sexual assault and whether you still have a chance to sue for being sexually abused while staying at Madera County Juvenile Detention Facility.

How Much can I Receive from a Madera County Juvenile Detention Facility Sexual Abuse Lawsuit?

On average, payments from a juvenile hall sexual abuse lawsuit fall between $1,000,000 and $5,000,000. Sexual assault claims are often settled for $2,500,000 to $5,000,000; sexual harassment cases are worth anywhere from $450,000 to $1,500,000. Though it’s rare, there are cases that settle for over $10,000,000 due to extreme circumstances, like aggravated assault that results in severe injuries and gross negligence by juvenile hall administrators.

You must always keep in mind that estimates do not necessarily reflect what you will receive from a lawsuit against Madera County Juvenile Detention Facility. Of course, it does help to consider the average value of a Madera County Juvenile Detention Facility lawsuit, but there are many factors that affect the amount of compensation that a victim is entitled to. These include, but are not limited to:

  • Number of sexual assault / harassment incidents
  • The relationship between the victim and the abuser
  • The duration of abuse (over how many weeks, months, years)
  • Acts of negligence, including deliberate misconduct that puts the inmate at risk of being sexually abused.

Average Length of Time to Settle a Juvenile Hall Sexual Assault Claim

In our experience, it takes 1 to 2 years before a settlement is reached in cases for the sexual abuse of an inmate at Madera County Juvenile Detention Facility. For cases that go to trial, the settlement timeline is 3 years or longer, though most lawsuits do not end up in court, even if a trial date is scheduled. Typically, there is almost always a settlement before the trial date, which is the most efficient way for both sides to put the case behind them. Nevertheless, claims for sexual assault at a juvenile hall are extremely complicated for many reasons, particularly if the incidents took place many years ago. That’s why we anticipate these cases taking around to 12 to 18 months, though a settlement can certainly be achieved much faster.
