The expansion of California’s statute of limitations for sexual assault claims has opened the door for survivors to seek justice for abuse experienced at various juvenile probation camps and halls in Los Angeles County, collectively referred to as “LAC Camp” cases. TorkLaw is actively involved in representing these survivors, ensuring their voices are heard, and obtaining the compensation they deserve for the harm they suffered at the hands of guards and employees at these facilities.
The Expansion of California’s Statute of Limitations for Sexual Assault Claims
California has taken a significant step forward in helping survivors of sexual assault seek justice by expanding its statute of limitations. This expansion allows survivors to file legal claims for sexual abuses that occurred years ago, providing them with an opportunity to hold their abusers accountable and receive compensation for their suffering.
In the context of LAC camp cases, this expansion has had a major impact, as survivors are now able to file civil complaints up to their 40th birth date. TorkLaw is actively filing sex abuse lawsuits on behalf of LAC camp victims, which involve various juvenile probation camps and juvenile halls in Los Angeles County where minors endured sexual abuse by the guards and employees of the facilities.

What is Sexual Abuse
Sexual abuse is a form of abuse involving non-consensual, unwanted sexual activity or behavior. It encompasses a range of actions, including, but not limited to, groping of genitals and buttocks, sexual intercourse, penetration of the victim with any body part or object, and oral copulation.
What is the difference between sexual abuse and rape?
Sexual abuse is a broad term covering any non-consensual sexual act or behavior, which can range from unwanted touching to exploitation. It doesn’t always involve physical contact and includes actions like harassment or coercion. Rape, however, is a specific form of sexual abuse involving non-consensual sexual intercourse. This includes any form of forced or coerced vaginal, anal, or oral penetration. While all rapes are sexual abuse, not all sexual abuse amounts to rape. At TorkLaw, we understand the nuances of these terms and provide legal representation for victims of both.
