Campbellton Sexual Abuse Lawyer


Sexual abuse involves an exploitation of power. Typically, sexual abusers use the authority over another person to manipulate or threaten them into engaging in non-consensual sexual activities. Their victims are often children, teenagers, or members of vulnerable populations including disabled or incarcerated individuals.

Consent is a clearly understood agreement between two adults. Children are not capable of giving consent for sexual activities. Even teenagers who have surpassed the age of consent could be abused by someone in a position of authority. If a trusted adult figure in a teenager’s life or someone upon whom they depend coerces them into engaging in sexual activities, the adult has committed sexual exploitation.

Sexual abusers often use their jobs or positions of authority to prey upon young or vulnerable people in their care. As such, sexual abuse often occurs within the structure of a larger institution. In many cases, sexual abuse is perpetrated by people who work or volunteer for a number of different organizations, including:

  • Schools
  • Religious institutions
  • Sports leagues
  • Extra-curricular programs
  • Summer camps
  • Detention centres
  • Psychiatric facilities
  • And more

The administrators of schools, religious organizations, and other organizations should prioritize the safety and best interests of their students, congregants, and other people in their care. However, in many situations, when the leadership of these types of institutions learns that one of its representatives, faculty members, or other affiliates has used their position to commit sexual abuse, the administrators try and sweep their actions under the rug. Instead of reporting the crime to the proper authorities, they may do their best to protect their employee or volunteer’s reputation. By turning a blind eye to abuses taking place within their organizations, institutions could put even more victims at risk of being abused by staff members in a consequence-free environment. This form of contributory negligence is referred to as systemic, or institutional sexual abuse.
