On behalf of Soloff & Zervanos, P.C. On Saturday, April 20, 2019.

We are learning that the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services (DHS) is revoking the license of Glen Mills, an all-boys school in Philadelphia. The revocation comes after a lengthy investigation. A DHS spokesperson cited “gross incompetence, negligence, and misconduct in operating the facilities,” and “mistreatment and abuse of children in care.” This move comes after […]

Help for Child Sex Abuse Survivors For too many years, too many victims of child sexual abuse have been barred from bringing claims because too much time has passed. New York has had a statute of limitations in place that disallowed adult survivors of child sexual abuse to bring legal action against their abusers after […]

The Jehovah’s Witness Church settled a lawsuit brought by a victim of child sexual. The victim was represented by Jeffrey P. Fritz of our office. The terms of the confidential settlement cannot be disclosed, but the victim alleged that the church elders in her congregation intentionally did not report the child sexual abuse to the […]

The Penn State scandal that erupted back in 2012 was a heartbreaking, upsetting story. The allegations against Jerry Sandusky involved sexual abuse against children. According to CNN.com, Sandusky is “seeking to overturn his conviction, claiming defense lawyers bungled the 2012 trial in which he was found guilty of sexually abusing 10 boys and sentenced to at […]

We have written many times about the institutional failings that have allowed for the widespread sex abuse of children by Catholic priests and other church officials. Even if sex abuse was limited to just a handful of priests (which is not the case), some of these predators have abused dozens of victims. Such crimes can […]

We recently wrote about the strong passage of House Bill 1947 in the Pennsylvania House. If passed in the Senate and signed into law, the measure would give many more victims of child sex abuse an opportunity to hold their abusers (and the institutions they worked for) accountable in criminal and civil court. In the […]

Earlier this month, we wrote about efforts in Pennsylvania to change statute-of-limitations laws in cases related to child sex abuse. The problem with current laws is that they are inconsistent with how victims commonly process their abuse. Memories of child sex abuse can be repressed for decades before victims begin having flashbacks. In other cases, […]

In early 2013, a Franciscan friar committed suicide in the Pennsylvania monastery where he had been living. The friar, a man named Stephen Baker, had been accused of sexually molesting dozens of children in several states, and the list of accusers was getting longer by the day. If he had acted alone, Baker’s suicide might […]

Our brains are hardwired to remember fear. This serves an important evolutionary purpose: We need to remember dangerous situations so we can avoid them later. For most people, this hardwiring is not a burden. But if you have experienced trauma – violence, war, sex abuse, a car accident – it can become etched in your […]

On behalf of Soloff & Zervanos, P.C. On Friday, January 22, 2016.

There is a term that is sometimes used in connection with allegations of child sex abuse. That term is “passing the trash.” When a teacher (or other school employee) is accused of abusing children, they should be turned over to police and publicly fired. Too often, however, the employer allows that employee to quietly resign […]
