JROTC Sexual Abuse Attorneys

JROTCThe true number of how many children and teenagers who have experienced child sexual abuse (CSA) is unknown due to how many unreported cases there are. A New York Times report revealed the alarming prevalence of child sexual abuse in the Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC).

JROTC Sexual Misconduct Claims

Over the past five years, at least 60 instructors have been accused of sexual misconduct by high school cadets….”
As a result of the New York Times investigative report, the Committee on Oversight and Return has reported some shocking statistics against instructors in the JROTC program. Over the past five years, at least 60 instructors have been accused of sexual misconduct by high school cadets. Of these 60 allegations, 58 have been substantiated by school or law enforcement investigations. However, authorities believe the data does not accurately reflect the true number of claims against JROTC instructors.

What is Child Abuse, Neglect, or Endangerment?

The New Jersey Department of Children & Families (DCF) defines child abuse as any action or lack of action that results in harm or potential harm to a child by a parent or other caregiver. Some signs that a child may be being abused include being exposed to violence or physical harm, being forced to work in dangerous conditions, being sexually assaulted, or experiencing severe punishment.

Sexual abuse of children can take many different forms, from rape and sexual assault to psychological pressure and indecent exposure. Regardless of how it is carried out, child sexual abuse is a heinous crime that can have long-lasting and devastating effects on victims.

If a child is a victim of abuse, the wrongdoers can be held responsible in both criminal and civil cases. Unfortunately, criminal proceedings don’t provide financial compensation for the survivor; they only seek to punish the abuser. That’s why it’s essential to bring civil claims and secure compensation for the survivor of abuse.

What Is the Statute of Limitations for Sexual Abuse Claims Against JROTC?

As more and more victims of sexual abuse in the JROTC, Boy Scouts, and medical community come forward with their allegations, New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy has signed a bill extending the statute of limitations for childhood sexual abuse survivors. This legislation gives survivors until age 55, or seven years from the time they realize they were abused, to file a civil lawsuit against their abusers. It provides a much-needed measure of justice for survivors of childhood sexual abuse.

Can Victims of Sexual Abuse Bring a Legal Suit Against JROTC?

The long-term effects of child sexual abuse can be devastating, and unfortunately, money is not enough to undo the emotional, sexual, and financial consequences faced by victims. Despite this, those affected may seek financial reparations from the perpetrator or other relevant parties.

In New Jersey, personal injury lawsuits alleging child sexual abuse may include various causes of action, such as assault, battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and negligent infliction of emotional distress.

If you’ve been wronged, you don’t have to face the situation alone. An experienced lawyer can help you and your family understand your legal rights and seek justice.
