Lawyers Dedicated to Protecting Kentucky Sexual Abuse Victims
Sexual abuse cases are among the most egregious cases we handle. They often involve years of abuse methodically perpetrated by the abusers. In the context of religious organizations, the abuse is often known and ignored or, in the most horrendous cases, hidden. Thankfully, more brave individuals are coming forward every day to expose these heinous acts.
At Gray & White Law our team is dedicated to exposing the abuse and corruption involved in priest sexual abuse cases and forcing those responsible to be held accountable for their actions.
Initiating a lawsuit for priest sexual abuse is not a decision to be taken lightly. We are here to help answer your questions and provide you with the necessary information so you can decide if you want to move forward.
There are many questions involved when suing a priest or the Catholic Church for abuse. Some of the most common questions are addressed below. Again, we will answer any question you have particular to your situation.
Are Cases Against Priests for Sexual Abuse Confidential?
Unfortunately, it depends. We will bring your cases as an alias such as John or Jane Doe for purposes of filing the lawsuit. It is often up to the trial court judge, however, to respect the confidentiality of the process and protect your identity. We will do everything within our power to protect your confidentiality.
Also, historically, most cases against priests currently settle out of court before trial. This, of course, doesn’t guarantee your case will resolve without a trial. Also, you are entitled to your day in court so no defendant priest or the church can force you to settle if you don't want to.
Why Haven’t More Cases Been Brought Against Pedophile Priests?
There are many cases brought each year against priests for rape, sodomy, and all types of sexual abuse and misconduct. Most of the public, however, never hears of these cases because they are generally quietly settled. The Catholic Church has been methodically keeping these cases hidden from the public and, unfortunately, has done a masterful job.
In addition, many states have very strict timelines for when a lawsuit against a priest can be filed. In many cases, the time has run out to file a case against a priest for sexual abuse, rape or sodomy. Thankfully, this is currently changing. Many states, including, Kentucky, are reviewing, and hopefully passing, laws that will allow abuse victims to now sue priests whose claims were previously time-barred.
This is the right thing to do and we are thankful to see states correcting these laws that were so unfair to children of priest sexual abuse. The priest and church relied on these laws to protect them from civil lawsuits. If these laws get overturned, they will no longer be able to hide.
What Information Will You Need From Me?
Each case is different. In order to best represent you, we will need to conduct a free, confidential, consultation to determine if a case can be pursed and what that will mean for you if you decide to pursue it. Some clients have many documents and names of witnesses to share with us. Others have only their own memories. We have successfully handled cases in both scenarios and many in between. Whatever your circumstance, we can help determine the best plan to bring your lawsuit.
Who Will Handle My Case?
Mark Gray and Matt White work each case in the firm together. As a local Kentucky firm, you will not be handed off to an associate attorney. Your case will be handled by our partners from start to finish.
