Oregon Juvenile Detention or Residential Treatment Facilities Sexual Abuse Lawsuits

Fighting for Survivors Sexually Abused in Oregon Juvenile Detention or Residential Treatment Facilities

Youth in Oregon have suffered for decades in facilities that were intended to help them become better citizens. These residential facilities are places that were supposed to provide a safe place for troubled youth, and yet they were actually yet another place where these youth were victimized.

Finally, survivors are starting to come forward to talk about the experiences they had at these residential facilities. In Oregon and throughout the country, these survivors are standing up and letting their abusers know that what happened to them was not okay and will not be accepted any longer.

Sexual Abuse at Oregon Juvenile Residential Facilities

The U.S. Department of Justice released a report of incidents of sexual abuse in juvenile detention centers back in 2010. That report, which evaluated facilities nationwide during the period from 2008 to 2009, found alarming results at three Oregon facilities. 

  • Hillcrest Youth Correctional Facility – 8.9%
  • MacLaren Youth Correctional Facility – 12.9%
  • Rogue Valley Youth Correctional Facility – 11.9%

But that’s not all.

In 2013 a report was released by the US. DOJ, which looked at sexual abuse in juvenile detention centers throughout the nation in 2012. In that report it was determined that rates of sexual abuse at the three above-named facilities had remained the same or even increased. However, additional facilities were found to have high instances of sexual abuse as well.

  • Eastern Oregon Youth Correctional Facility – 13.3%
  • North Coast Youth Correctional Facility – 15.8%
  • Oak Creek Youth Correctional Facility – 7.7%
  • Tillamook Youth Correctional Facility – 11.6%

Oregon’s Statute of Limitations for Civil Sexual Abuse Lawsuits

Under current law, survivors of childhood sexual abuse in Oregon have until their 40th birthday, or five years from the date they discover that their damages (which can include addiction, self-harm, and other mental health issues) are connected to their abuse, to file civil lawsuits.

Determining the statute of limitations in your case can be challenging, which is why it is best to have your matter evaluated personally by an attorney. At Levy Konigsberg, our award-winning team has extensive experience representing survivors in sexual abuse lawsuits against many powerful defendants and institutions, and can help you understand the statute of limitations in your case.
