Beginning when she was nine years old, our client faced frequent and ongoing sexual abuse from a man who was like a father to her. Growing up in a dysfunctional household, our client said the abuser acted as a father figure and protector to her, gaining her trust and compliance.
In addition to separate criminal charges, Boyk Law Sexual Assault Attorneys Wes Merillat and Andrea Young represented the young woman in pursing damages for claims of intentional infliction of emotional distress and unintentional emotional distress, securing a judgement of $500,000.
Our client will never be the same person she could have been had this sexual abuse never occurred. She testified that she suffered severe, lasting emotional injuries including a damaged self-image and difficulty trusting others or asking for help. Our hope is that the funds received through this judgement will help her secure the years of mental, physical, and emotional help she needs to recover from these reprehensible crimes committed against her.
