Hollywood Sexual Assault
Sexual assault is a devastating experience, and one that leaves emotional scars, considerable medical bills, and a great deal of trauma in its wake. Unfortunately, many perpetrators of sexual assault and rape never fully have to face the consequences of their actions while victims may face the consequences for years to come.
If you have been the victim of sexual assault, there are legal options available to you. If your attacker is found, you may wish to pursue criminal charges in order to hold the offender criminally accountable for their actions.

Sexual assault can lead to devastating consequences for the survivor, including:
- Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Depression and anxiety
- Difficulty returning to work
- Physical injuries, such as fractures, bruising, disfigurement, and more
- Sexually-transmitted infection
- Permanent injury
- Upset that can lead to problems with relationships
Survivors often suffer for years or even a lifetime after a sexual assault. While the criminal justice system makes it a crime to commit sexual assault, the consequences for rapists and assaulters is often not adequate. Survivors often feel victimized by the justice system again when they try to pursue justice in their case and in many cases rapists and assaulters get minimum jail time or inadequate jail time. In some cases, the perpetrators are never caught.What Can be Done?
In addition to the upset of suffering and surviving a sexual assault, survivors often face considerable financial issues after their assault. There may be many injuries, including head injuries and soft tissue injuries, that they sustained in the attack and which require expensive medical care.
