We use our significant skills, resources and legal knowledge to fight for justice on your behalf.
Sexual assault and misconduct are serious charges in Los Angeles, CA
Sexual assault is a term that covers a range of sex crimes, from unwelcome physical contact to rape. Under California law, rape is defined as nonconsensual sexual intercourse that generally involves the use of force, violence, duress, menace, and threats of future retaliation or immediate bodily injury. A victim may be unconscious or incapacitated. The penalties for all types of sexual assault are severe, and a person convicted of rape may face a prison sentence of three or more years.
At The Ruttenberg Law Firm, PC, our highly compassionate and experienced sexual harassment lawyers fight to obtain justice for victims of rape and sexual assault. We have experience in dealing with clients who are victims of the following:
- Forceful grabbing, pinching, or brushing against in a sexual manner
- Physical touching of a victim
- Indecent exposure
- Undesired exposure to pornography
- Public display of images taken when the victim was in private or was unaware
- Rape, sodomy and other sexual acts
Is my employer responsible for damages?
When a sexual assault occurs in the workplace, our employment law attorneys generally hold employers accountable for damages. In many cases, supervisors or other managers use their power to coerce sexual favors or prevent an employee from reporting an act of sexual assault. When a fellow co-worker is guilty of rape or performing an act of unwanted physical touching, your employer may be responsible if management failed to conduct a background check or take corrective action when the harassment was reported. Through sensitive and discreet representation, our attorneys analyze your case and clarify your rights and options after a workplace assault.
