New York State has passed the Adult Survivors Act which provides a limited window until November 23, 2023, for survivors of sexual assault and sexual abuse, who were 18 years old or older at the time of the occurrence, to bring lawsuits for the offense, regardless of how long ago it was committed. In the past, we have seen a huge expansion in Correctional facility sexual abuse. Correctional Officer sexual abuse and sexual assaults on inmates has always been a prevalent issue. 

The law overrides the current State statute of limitations and allows survivors to bring a lawsuit against the perpetrator and any institutions and/or employers that knew, or should have known, that the sexual assault or abuse was taking place.  Survivors who were sexually assaulted at a New York Correctional facility can sue the Department of Corrections and Community Service.  Correctional facilities where inmates have been sexually assaulted include Albion, Bayview, Bedford-Hills, Taconic and Rose M Singer, Rikers Island Correctional Facility.

THE ADULT SURVIVORS ACT CAN HELP SURVIVORS OF SEXUAL ABUSE BY CORRECTIONAL OFFICERS

Correctional officers often leverage their power to manipulate inmates into submission, they might provide commodities from the outside, or threaten to file misbehavior reports if the inmate doesn’t comply. Fear of retaliation, lack of appropriate remedies and inmates’ disempowered position often result in the underreporting of staff on inmate sexual abuse. NYC correction facility sexual assault attorneys at The Law Offices of Michael S. Lamonsoff can help correctional facility victims of sexual abuse get the justice they deserve.

Staff on inmate sexual misconduct is rampant, unchecked, and often covered up in New York. As part of a union collective bargaining agreement, correctional officers cannot be suspended or fired until the allegation is settled or finalized by an arbitrator. In some cases, even if the Department of Corrections and Community Supervision substantiates sexual misconduct allegations, the arbitrator can still determine that there isn’t sufficient proof, and allow the accused officer to return to work at the same facility where they were accused. New York Adult Sexual Assault Attorneys at The Law Offices of Michael S. Lamonsoff can help you seek justice if you have suffered sexual abuse or assault in a correctional facility.
