Sex Crime Attorneys in Fairfield, California
On both media and legal platforms, people hear an abundance of information concerning sexual abuse in work places, in schools and in homes. While the focus usually centers on children and how they are affected by sexual abuse, the crime of sexual abuse aims at protecting a wide range of people from their predators. Sexual abuse refers to any type of unwanted or nonconsensual sexual contact or advancement by one person on another.
The defining character of sexual abuse is that its victims are usually under the care or guardianship of their abuser in some form. Examples include parents, guardians and teachers, especially when the alleged victim is a child. However, it has been found that sexual abuse occurs in places of medical treatment and convalescent homes. Aside from children, the other major people ground that is often the subject of sexual abuse are the elderly because of their dependence on others and inability to defend themselves.
These facts lead to the conclusion that people with influence and in positions of leadership will be under more scrutiny as they interact with those under their care. Parents, teachers, nurses, doctors and private caretakers should be intentional and cautious so as to not solicit false accusations of sexual abuse. Unfortunately, no matter how careful someone is, they can always be accused of sexual abuse.
