    Riverside County Sheriff’s Deputy Arrested for Sexual Assault

    Riverside County Sheriff's Deputy Arrested for Sexual Assault lawyer attorney liability sue

    Alexander Vanny, a deputy with the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department, was placed on arrest on June 22, 2024 based on allegations of sexual assault against a department volunteer. An investigation was launched after the volunteer reported the incident to another deputy and evidence of sexual assault was uncovered, which led to the suspect’s arrest.

    Vanny, who has been with the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department for 8 years, was initially held on $1,000,000 bail on charges of forced oral copulation, rape by force, and suspicion of kidnapping to commit rape. However, he was released on Sunday according to police records.

    Sadly, there are far too many cases of law enforcement officers using their position of authority to take advantage of others in a sexual manner. Victims who have been sexually assaulted can seek criminal prosecution against the perpetrator. Additionally, they can file a lawsuit for monetary damages, like emotional distress, pain and suffering, and medical expenses, with help from a sexual abuse attorney. Filing a lawsuit can help the victim go after other entities that were negligent in their duty of care, like the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department or another government entity.

    If you or your loved one was sexually assaulted by a member of law enforcement, the lawyers of Kenmore Law Group are here to help. Our goal is to educate you on your rights and the available legal options, and help you move forward with your life in a positive direction.

    Am I Eligible for a Lawsuit against the Riverside Sheriff’s Department?

    Yes, you may have grounds to sue the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department if you were sexually abused by Alexander Vanny. While the Sheriff’s Department is not the criminal in this case, their negligence may have played a role in why this volunteer was sexually assaulted. We know for a fact that sheriff and police departments tend to look the other way when there are signs of sexual misconduct. If there are allegations of assault by a victim, it’s not by coincidence that many of these reports “fall through the cracks.” Even worse, victims are sometimes threatened into silence or bribed into settling the case for just a meager amount.

    This is why sexual predators infiltrate the system and stay there, sometimes for several decades. With Alexander Vanny, we know that he served for 8 years in Riverside County, and prior to that, he worked for the Hemet Sheriff’s Station. That’s an important factor in this case, as it indicates that he has had a long history in law enforcement.

    Just on this information alone, we have to ask: How many victims are out there that were sexually assaulted by Alexander Vanny? Were they given the opportunity to file charges and seek legal remedies? Was the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department aware of prior sexual abuse accusations against Vanny? What about the Hemet Sheriff’s Station – what did they know, if anything, and even more important, what did they choose to do with that knowledge?

    With most of these cases, we find that the employer / governing agency knew far too much, yet they failed to take appropriate action to protect the public. As a result, the rapist continues to hide behind their badge and use their position of power for sexual gratification.

    We believe that other victims are out there, ones who have lived for years with the pain and trauma of sexual assault. Perhaps you are someone who was sexually abused by Alexander Vanny or another officer with the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department. If so, we hope you will give us the chance to educate you on your rights and see if filing a sexual abuse lawsuit is in your best interest. Our legal team has decades of experience helping victims of sexual abuse obtain justice for the harm they suffered. Please contact our law firm and talk to a lawyer with experience in sexual assault claims against Sheriff’s deputies and police officers.

    Settlement Values for a Sexual Abuse Lawsuit

    Claims for sexual assault in the state of California are usually settled for anywhere between $500,000 and $1,000,000. However, we have had our share of cases that were settled for $2,000,000 to $5,000,000, so this is why we are reluctant to state a case value when people ask what these lawsuits are worth on average. Please note that each case involves many factors that are used to determine the level of harm and suffering inflicted on the victim, and the damages they are entitled to as a result. Translating all this into a dollar value is a complicated matter, which you should not attempt without help from a sexual assault lawyer.

    How Long Do Sexual Assault Lawsuits Take to Settle?

    Sexual abuse lawsuits against law enforcement agencies can take around 1 to 2 years to settle, and even longer if taking the case to trial is the best option. Please note that trials rarely happen; in our experience, around 95% of all sexual assault claims are settled privately between the plaintiff and defendant’s attorneys. Even without a trial, these are very complex lawsuits, and building a solid case and negotiating a fair compensation amount usually takes over 12 months. If you would like to discuss the settlement process in more detail with a member of our legal team, don’t hesitate to give us a call.

    Statute of Limitations to File a Claim for Sexual Assault

    Victims who are 18 years of age or older have 10 years to file a sexual assault lawsuit. This time period starts from the date of assault, or from the most recent incident of abuse if there were multiple incidents over an extended period of time.

    If you were younger than 18 when you were sexually abused or assaulted, you have much longer to file a claim for monetary damages. Under California law, child sexual abuse survivors have until the age of 40 to file a lawsuit, which is essentially 22 years following the age of adulthood. As an alternative, victims may also file a lawsuit within 5 years of realizing an injury caused by sexual abuse while they were a minor. The discovery rule applies to both psychological and physical injury, and the vast majority of these claims are based on the delayed discovery of anger issues, suicidal thoughts, drug addiction, and other mental health issues stemming from sexual assault.

    Thankfully, the discovery rule has given many childhood sex abuse survivors over the age of 40 a second chance at justice. To verify your eligibility for a sexual assault lawsuit, contact our attorneys as soon as possible.
