For decades, trusted Penn State officials, administrators, coaches, and other personnel failed to address one of their own – assistant coach Jerry Sandusky – for allegedly sexually abusing children entrusted to his care.

Instead of ending the abuse by taking actions within the institution and notifying law enforcement, the Penn State leadership stood idle and allowed additional victims to fall prey to a terrible predator. Unchecked by law, countless children were abused throughout the years. Finally, many who were abused have begun to come forward to let others know about what really happened.
If you were sexually abused as a child by any representative of Penn State University or The Second Mile, a lawyer can be instrumental in helping you send a message that this abuse cannot and will not be tolerated. Moreover, a lawyer can help you recover financially for your injuries. Such action can help you continue the emotional and psychological healing that you need. Additionally, a lawsuit can maintain focus on this terrible problem and hopefully prevent others from being victims of abuse as well. Comitz Law Firm, LLC can help individuals who have suffered from sexual abuse.
