Cincinnati School Sexual Assault Lawyer

Sexual assault in a school setting is an absolutely inexcusable violation of personal privacy. Any form of sexual assault can be harmful to a child who may be unaware of the consequences of their own actions and the actions of others. An event of this type can be hugely detrimental to the development of a child throughout their life, leaving them emotionally damaged in unimaginable ways.

If you believe your child has been a victim of sexual assault in any form while on school grounds or otherwise under the care and supervision of school district personnel or affiliates, it is important that you understand your legal rights. A civil lawsuit may be an appropriate form of recourse and can provide you with financial compensation to address physical, psychological, and other damages. Contact the Cincinnati sexual assault lawyers of Stepleton Dugan, LLC by calling 513-321-7733 today.

What Is Considered Child Sexual Assault

Knowing what is considered child sexual assault is crucial in responding to it and working to prevent it. Child sexual assault is not only sexual behavior between an adult and a child, but can also occur between children. Any and all sexual activity between a child and an adult is sexual assault and is never acceptable.

Sexual assault between an adult and a child includes any form of abusive touching. This includes harmful contact of body parts for sexual purposes. But contact is not the only factor in sexual abuse of a child by an adult. If an adult shows pornography to a child, or causes a child to watch or hear sexual activity, this is considered sexual abuse. If an adult exposes their genitals to a child, this is considered sexual abuse, as well as photographing a child in sexual poses or observing them undress.

Sexual assault between children is handled somewhat differently. Typically, children with an age difference of three or more years who engage in sexual activities are considered abusive. Also, if a child who is much physically larger or more developed performs a sexual activity on another child it is considered abuse.
