To learn more about how we may be able to help, contact our sexual abuse lawyers serving London by calling 1-800-JUSTICE and receive a free initial consultation.

Criminal Court vs. Civil Court

Most cases of sexual abuse people hear about are criminal cases. In these instances, a Crown Lawyer of Ontario prosecutes the defendant and if convicted, their punishment will include fines and jail time. Civil cases, on the other hand, include the defendant, the plaintiff (the one bringing the case to court) and London sexual abuse lawyers that have been hired by both sides.

Many victims understand these differences, but are unsure which to do first, either press criminal charges or take the case to civil court. In most cases, it is better to let the case be heard in criminal court before taking it to civil court. This is because a conviction in criminal court can help strengthen the case in civil court.

Also, when a civil proceeding is begun before a criminal trial, this can hurt the victim’s chances of getting the results they want in civil court. Lawyers for the defendant may point to the civil case as evidence that the victim is only trying to get financial compensation and say the abuse never occurred.

In recent years, Ontario has recently overturned the old statute of limitations on sexual abuse cases with the passing of Bill 132. This bill, which was passed in 2016, states that there are no longer limitation periods on sexual abuse cases. This is good news for those who have ever been sexually abused, as it can sometimes take 10, 20, or even 40 years or more before victims feel as though they can come forward with their case.


The victims of sexual abuse often feel the adverse effects of being violated emotionally, psychologically, and financially. By working with our London sexual abuse lawyers, survivors of abuse may be able to hold their abusers accountable for their actions and recover compensation for damages they have incurred as a result of the traumatic experiences they were forced to endure. To receive a free initial consultation on your case, contact our sexual abuse lawyers serving London by calling 1-800-JUSTICE today.
