    Legal Options for Survivors of Sexual Abuse

     

    The criminal justice system was not designed to support, or even empower, survivors of sexual abuse. It’s goal, to punish those who victimize others, is certainly important, and the vast majority of prosecutors are good people who genuinely want to help. But where survivors are concerned, the system often falls short. We’ve spoken to many survivors who have honestly felt used by the system, treated as little more than pieces of evidence. That’s not to say we don’t believe in the sort of justice sought by the criminal justice system, but its treatment of survivors leaves much to be desired.

    Justice itself is a tricky concept, one that’s often used without much attention to what it actually means. In the criminal system, justice is a matter of proving that a person committed some act that society doesn’t condone. We punish them for it, putting them in jail, listing them on sex offender registries and, most commonly, fining them an amount of money. That’s justice, according to the criminal system: the state or federal government gets some cash and an offender gets put away.

    Prayer Need Surgery 2015.12.07

    Prayer Need: One teen male #ChildAbuse survivor we mentor is about to go into surgery to repair sexual damage done. It can be life threatening without the emergency surgery.

    Update December 8, 2015

    Need prayer for a young teen ‪#‎ChildAbuse‬ survivor I mentor every day. Just had surgery caused by the abuse suffered and things have taken a not good turn. Potassium levels extremely high, plus irregular heart rate. They are hooking up kidney dialysis to lower potassium levels. Could be a leakage from intestinal area so prepping for scans. Also could be causing bad bacterial infection which may be building as we speak.

    PLEASE Support our survivor support mentoring and care work for this victim thru #ArkofHope for Children http://bit.ly/1LHaAA8
