As the child sex abuse scandal has unfolded at Penn State this week, our Sarasota child abuse lawyers have followed the case closely. While we feel nothing but compassion and outrage for the victims who have come forward to allege abuse by a former college football coach, we can’t say that we are shocked by the developing story. Unfortunately, we understand all too well that child sexual abuse is far more common than many think, and that finding support and justice in the wake of abuse can be difficult.

At Mallard Perez, we are dedicated to assisting families with their child abuse claims and to making sure that whoever is to blame takes responsibility for what has happened. We understand both the delicate nature of these cases as well as how important it is to children and their families that justice is served. As the scandal at Penn State has illustrated, child sex abuse is too often ignored, covered up, or treated as taboo. We want you to know that victims and their families have the right to tell their stories, seek legal action, and reach out for help if they choose. 

If you suspect your child has been the victim of sexual abuse, immediately remove your child from the vicinity of the abuser and contact the authorities. If you need legal help with your possible child sex abuse claim, we invite you to speak with one of our experienced Florida child abuse attorneys. Call us toll-free at 888-409-3805 or contact us online to schedule a free, private consultation.
