When criminal molestation charges occur, it is normal for victims, for families, for entire communities to eagerly await justice and see a convicted defendant rightfully punished. As necessary this process is, however, it does not make amends to the victims left behind—or hold accountable the other parties that may have facilitated the crime in the first place.
At Okabe & Haushalter, we understand that the justice system can’t erase the harm done by criminal offenders and that, even when guilty verdicts are rendered, the lives of individuals and families can be altered by their actions forever. That is why our aggressive and dedicated Los Angeles lawyers for molestation victims work with those affected and their families to seek relief for the trauma they have suffered and pursue a meaningful resolution to their ordeal.
If you or a loved one has been affected by molestation, then our firm is ready to hear your story and take decisive action. Call us at 818-722-3452 today.
Who Is Accountable?
Of course, an individual who physically commits molestation is responsible for the crime and should be held responsible in a court of law. Time and time again, however, we have seen larger institutions who knew about that individual’s abuse—or should have known about it—fail to act and protect others.
Common defendants in these cases include:
- School districts
- Universities and colleges
- Religious institutions
- Childcare professionals/facilities
- Elderly care professionals/facilities
- Medical facilities
- Business owners
If you believe that an institution like the ones listed above facilitated molestation against you or a loved one, then the time to seek justice is now. At Okabe & Haushalter, our attorneys know what it takes to hold these parties responsible—even when they have considerable legal resources and courtroom litigation is necessarily.
