An Introduction…

by Marcus Castillo

This blog/website  is intended to be a resource for victims of crime or sexual abuse seeking just compensation through the civil justice system. As I write this in December 2011 the news is filled with sordid reports of sexual abuse allegedly perpetrated on children at the hands of athletic coaches while their superiors looked the other way. As we dive into these issues we will clarify the related but separate roles of the criminal and civil justice systems and pinpoint the theories of civil liability alleged by the victims. I look forward to our dialogue.
