What is Considered Sexual Assault of Minors?

As mentioned above, when it comes to minors, an act of sexual assault does not have to involve physical activity or even physical contact between the victim and the abuser. Added to this is the fact that we trust people to keep our children safe from abuse and there is an unfortunately long list of harm and negligence that contribute to substantial damages. 

Unfortunately, 93% of sexual assaults involve someone the child knew according to the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network (RAINN).

An injury lawyer with Perdue & Kidd tenaciously handles sexual assault of a minor cases involving:

  • Church Staff and Clergy
  • Camp Counselors
  • School Staff or Faculty
  • Family Members
  • Babysitter or Nanny
  • Scout Groups
  • Sports Coaches or Staff
  • Rape
  • Intercourse
  • Molestation
  • Fondling
  • Oral Sex
  • Anal Sex
  • Child Pornography
  • Exposing Oneself to a Child
