In the early morning hours last Saturday a resident of a South Side apartment building in San Antonio, Texas, was stabbed repeatedly in the torso. The bad news is that the unidentified victim in his 40s faces potentially life-threatening injuries. The good news is that he was taken to University Hospital and is now under careful medical observation.


Stabbings happen all to often in Texas, as many residents know. What many crime victims don’t know, however, is that violent crime, such as a stabbing or shooting, give rise not only to a criminal cause of action pursued by law enforcement, but also a civil cause of action that victims may pursue to recovery monetarily. In some cases, civil damage awards can exceed a million dollars!

Tragically, it’s not. Every year, 213,000 Americans are victims of sexual assault. That’s an average of a sexual assault every two minutes. Of course, many of these occur at the workplace. To make matters worse, 60 percent of assaults go unreported and 15 out of 16 rapists will never spend a day jail.


Workplace sexual assault occurs in every town and industry. For instance, just this week a former, female employee for KBR Inc. and Halliburton Co. filed suit against her former employer for a rape that occurred at work. According to the victim’s attorney, KBR and Halliburton have a long history of failing to protect workers from sexual assault.

In Texas alone, 22 officers have died during traffic stops since January of 2010.

Donald Leeroy Ballard, a Little League umpire near Houston, Texas, lured a 16-year-old child into his residence with the promise of food and video games. Once inside the home, Ballard sexually assaulted the child. Given Mr. Ballard’s relatively high interaction with teenage boys throughout Liberty County, the Liberty County Sheriff’s Office was concerned that Ballard might have sexually assaulted other children as well.


Ballard will be subject to criminal charges, however, he also will likely face tort allegations, too.
