Sex Abuse

Sex abuse occurs when one person forces unwanted sexual activity upon another person. This can include molestation, inappropriate touching or other acts made to increase sexual stimulation in either the offender or the victim. As opposed to sexual assault which tends to occur inconsistently or over a short period of time, sexual abuse refers to a long-term trend of unwanted sexual conduct with another person. Any sexual activity involving a child is also known as sex abuse, and adults who commit this type of crime against a minor under the age of consent will surely face criminal and civil penalties alike. Any victim of this heinous sex crime should immediately seek the services of a qualified professional at Squires and Associates.

Sex abuse occurs most often between family members, or involves friends of the family who are available to carry out their compulsions on a somewhat regular basis. The victims of sex abuse are generally the subjects of physical, mental and emotional abuse as well, as these can be effective tools in further isolating victims from those who may be able to help. It can be very difficult for the victims of this type of invasive crime to overcome, especially for children. Medical attention may be required to treat a victim's injuries, but other types of therapy may be required for years in order to resolve the issues caused by a traumatic experience with sexual abuse. In many cases, those who have suffered physical, mental or emotional personal injury as a result of sex assault may be entitled to receive financial compensation to cover these costs associated with recovery.
