Civil Lawsuits (Defense)
Often a criminal charge of sexual misconduct is followed by a civil lawsuit to take all of the defendant and his family’s money. Frequently the victim of these lawsuits are innocent wives or family members because the community assets of the non-offender spouse are reachable to satisfy huge potential judgements, often millions of dollars, totally wiping out a life time of work.
No Insurance CoverageTypical insurance policies do not cover intentional torts and sex molestation and sexual battery are considered intentional torts. Plaintiff attorneys seek out people with assets such as homeownership, companies and churches; or just folks who have worked their entire lives and saved their money.
