Jail Sexual Assault Lawsuit

In every state and territory of the United States, it is completely illegal for a prison guard or other prison staff member to have any kind of sexual contact with a prisoner. This isn’t just a question of maintaining moral or safety standards, it’s also a major civil rights issue. 

That’s because a prisoner by definition cannot consent to sexual contact with someone who has authority over them. Prison guards and staff have the power to make a prisoner's life drastically worse, and any prisoner who engages in such sexual contact does so knowing that they risk retaliation if they refuse. 

The practical upshot is that any prison guard or other staff that engages in sexual contact with a prisoner is violating their civil rights, and that prisoner may be able to sue for compensation. 

If you or a loved one had sexual contact with a prison guard or other staff member, you may have a case for compensation for the violation of rights and other possible traumas suffered. Call today for a free consultation. 

A Serious Violation of Rights 

Our civil rights attorneys have seen a wide range of unacceptable conduct by prison guards and staff, including:

  • Physical coercion. 
  • Extortion or blackmail. 
  • Withholding of basic needs. 
  • Humiliation.

No matter how it happens, sexual contact and abuse between prison staff and inmates is wrong, and those responsible need to be held accountable. 

Difficult, But Possible.

It can be very tricky to go after government entities like prisons. They have advantages in financial resources for defense, and the justice system will often instinctively trust the version of events presented by government authorities. But it is still possible to win, and to get the compensation victims deserve. 

If you or a loved one was sexually abused or assaulted by a prison guard or other staff member, call Morgan & Morgan. We’re the largest personal injury law firm in the country, and we have the resources to take your case as far it needs to go in order to get justice.

We’ve been fighting for the people against the powerful for more than 30 years, and we want to fight for you too. Call today.

Jail Sexual Assault FAQs

  • We don’t have the financial resources to hire a lawyer, what should we do?

    No matter your financial situation, you have the ability to pursue legal action with a great law firm. That’s because law firms like Morgan & Morgan operate on the contingency-fee model, which means clients pay nothing upfront, and only pay if their case is successfully resolved and compensation is received. So working with Morgan & Morgan causes zero financial stress or risk. 

  • What if the prison staff member involved claims that the relationship was consensual?

    True consent is impossible when one of the parties is under the authority of the other, period. No matter what that staff member claims, the sexual contact is illegal, and you may be eligible for compensation.

Unbelievably organized, responsive and probably the most effective process-oriented group of people I've ever seen. Their preparation for mediation and trial is beyond comprehensive. Across two cases and 3 years, not once did anything fall between the cracks. Everyone I came into contact with exemplifies professionalism; they quickly resolved insurance issues and spent time educating me about everything affecting my cases.

It has been an amazing experience with your law firm. I will be happy to refer any of my family and friends to your law firm. I am very thankful to Sabrina Thornburg and Andrew Felix for everything that they have done on my case. Sabrina kept in touch with me to let me know how everything was going and I am very happy with the service that she and Andrew provided. Your slogan really is true, you are for the people. Thank you.

Slip and Fall
I was very happy with the communication between the legal counsel and myself. If I had any questions I could leave it if not directly and I would have an answer within 24 hours by either email or a courtesy phone call. Also, the quick resolution of the matter was something I appreciate very much. Needless to say the result was more than expected.

I originally hired a different law firm after being involved in a multi-car accident on the interstate, but after a few conversations, arguments, and showing me other cases were more important than mine, I called and hired Morgan & Morgan! That was one of the best decisions I've made as an adult! Not only have they been in contact with me, but they listened and found mistakes in the crash report that the officer didn't want to admit to! I'm beyond thankful!
