Yuba County Juvenile Hall Lawsuit Lawyer


Yuba County Juvenile Hall Lawsuit Lawyer compensation lawyer attorney sue

Yuba County Juvenile Hall is a youth detention center located at 1023 14th St, Marysville, CA 95901. Run by the County Probation Department, the facility is a maximum security unit for up to 60 inmates from Yuba, Sutter and Colusa Counties. Due to this arrangement, Yuba County Juvenile Hall is also known as Yuba-Sutter Juvenile Hall and the Tri County Juvenile Rehabilitation Facility.

Most of the youths at the center are awaiting sentencing by the Juvenile Court, so their stay at the facility usually lasts a few weeks or months. However, even a few days is entirely too long when a detention center is poorly managed and operated by abusive staff members. In particular, using one’s position of power to sexually abuse a child is very common at places like Yuba County Juvenile Hall.

Alternatively, are you someone that was sexually abused at the Maxine Singer Youth Guidance Center, also located at 1023 14th Street, Marysville? A juvenile inmate sexual abuse attorney at our office is here for you day and night if you wish to discuss the possibility of suing for incidents of sexual harassment and/or assault at Yuba County Juvenile Hall.

Can I Sue Yuba County Juvenile Hall for Sexual Abuse?

Yes, you can sue for if you were sexually abused by a staff member at Yuba County Juvenile Hall while you were an incarcerated youth. Your right to a lawsuit is based on the principle of liability, which means that Yuba County is legally responsible if you suffer bodily harm or psychological damage due to negligence by one of its agencies or employees.

It’s no secret that the people in charge of a juvenile detention facility neglect their duty of care to protect minors from sexual assault and other forms of mistreatment. Some of them are directly participate in these events, but even if they don’t, they often ignore allegations or clear signs of child sexual abuse.

Sometimes, this is due to inexperience and poor leadership. But we normally find that there was willful misconduct on the part of county officials, like destroying evidence of sexual abuse and threatening the victim if they persist with their complaints. For example, many of our clients were told that they would lose privileges, be denied basic necessities, or have extra time added on their sentence if they went ahead with a formal complaint.

There are plenty of other examples that show negligence on the part of juvenile hall administrators, which is grounds for a lawsuit against Yuba County, and not just the person that sexually abused you.

How Long Do Lawsuits against Juvenile Halls Take to Settle?

A youth detention center sexual misconduct lawsuit often takes between 1 and 2 years to settle, though the exact timeframe for each individual case is impossible to predict.  But we know from decades of experience that child sexual assault lawsuits are notoriously difficult. Plus, you have the complication of suing an entity of the government, so overall, it’s difficult to reach a settlement on these cases within 6 months, as we do with a lot of personal injury claims. Cases that go to trial will take anywhere from 3 to 5 years, but please note that well over 90% of these lawsuits are resolved through negotiations between attorneys, and not tried before a judge and jury.

Statute of Limitations for a Yuba County Juvenile Hall Lawsuit for Sexual Abuse

If you were 18 years old or over when you were first sexually abused at Yuba County Juvenile Hall, your time limit for a lawsuit is 10 years from the most recent incident of sexual assault, solicitation, etc. If you were younger than 18 when the abuse began, you would file a lawsuit for child sexual abuse.

Lawsuits for sex abuse against a minor will need to be filed by the victim’s 40th birthday, as the statute of limitations is 22 years from when you are 18 years old. But you can also use another standard known as the discovery rule. This is based on when you discover an emotional or physical injury that was caused by the trauma of child abuse.

For example, it may have taken you decades after the abuse at Yuba County Juvenile Hall to go a therapist and seek help for various mental health disorders. Due to a child’s tendency to repress psychologically painful memories, you did not understand that your current suffering resulted from sexual assault or harassment by a juvenile hall staff member. Once your therapist helps you make this connection, you are allowed 5 years to sue Yuba County Juvenile Hall for child sexual abuse.
