8-in-10 sexual assault victims know the abuser. Nevertheless, whether the abuser is a teacher, clergy member, co-worker, family member, or even a stranger, in addition to criminal liability, they also face civil liability. Moreover, in some cases, third-parties such as schools, property managers, employers, and others may be held vicarious liable if their negligence enabled or aided the abuser. Even businesses may be liable for negligent or inadequate security if the abuse took place on their premises and should have been stopped.Sexual Violence Is Unfortunately Common
