SEXUAL ABUSE

There are 80,000 cases of sexual abuse that are reported every year and the number of the unreported cases are much greater. Sexual predators come in all forms and they usually already know the victim. It stems from an abuse of power. It is an egregious violation of trust. When this type of incident occurs with children, shame and confusion can be overwhelming and result in the victim not reporting the sex abuse.  An attempt to forget the ordeal happens frequently.  This often leads the victim into a gradual self-destructive behavior,  further abusive relationships, and an inability to trust family and friends.


At Hollingsworth and Mumen, we understand the fragile sensitive yet horrible situation. Laws have come a long way in recent decades to empower child sexual abuse victims in order to implicate their abusers and pursue legal damages from the organizations that harbor them. Take action right away and let us bring justice to you and your loved ones. See contact us


If you have been a victim of sexual abuse
  • Remember: It is NOT your fault. Only the offender is to blame for his or her actions.
  • You should report the assault to the police.  
  • It might be scary to seek help by yourself. Talk to someone you trust that is an adult. If you keep this secret to yourself, your friends and family can’t be there to support you.
  • You should go to a hospital or health clinic to make sure you’re physically okay.
