WWLTV and The Advocate newspaper recently featured segments and articles pertaining to sexual abuse survivors seeking justice in civil suits against former St. Tammany Parish sheriff Jack Strain. Also discussed are the ongoing constitutional challenges against the 2021 Louisiana state legislation that removed the time restriction for filing lawsuits and provided a three-year window for survivors to file suit, regardless of the amount of time that has passed since the abuse.
Lamothe Law Firm attorney Kristi Schubert speaks to WWLTV:
“Attorney Kristi Schubert of the Lamothe Law Firm … says that the average age for someone to come forward is 52. ‘I’ve talked to people in their 70s who I was the first person that they’ve ever told about the abuse,’ said Schubert.”
“‘Deadlines like the one Finn encountered were extremely unfair,‘ she said.”
“There are so many survivors who missed their opportunity for justice…hoping to get a second chance,” she said. ‘But many won’t even consider suing until the Louisiana Supreme Court rules on the matter, she said.”
Here’s the WWLTV article/video about the Strain civil suits and the upcoming Louisiana Supreme Court ruling.
