Countless young adults are subject to sexual abuse in juvenile detention centers (1). Unfortunately, children who are admitted to these institutions are stigmatized for past behavior and as a result harm against these children can be overlooked or “normalized” (2).  Further, children who are victims of sexual abuse while they are detained in juvenile facilities report to being victimized repeatedly (3).

If you or a loved one has been sexually abused, use the contact form on the Contact Us page, or email us at info@NYvictim.com. You can also contact us at (833) Victim 9 or (833) 842-8469. We will review sexual abuse claims from any time period.  There is no fee for speaking to us and talking to us does not obligate you to retain us.  All consultations are subject to attorney client privilege and will be confidential.
