Dr. William Thompson IV Arrested for Sexual Assault


Who is Dr. William Thompson IV?

Dr. William Thompson IV, a doctor in Newport, California, arrested for sexually abusing nine male patients. The alleged assaults happened between 2016 – 2020 and included unnecessary anal exams and rape. Thompson faces several felonies, including fraudulent sexual penetration under professional pretense, sexual battery fraud, and forcible oral copulation.

Thompson’s practice caters to LGBTQ patients, adding a layer of betrayal and community alarm. Given the existing number of victims, it is believed there are more. You are not alone.

How Can A Civil Lawsuit Help Victims Seek Justice For The Trauma They May Have Experienced From Dr. William Thompson IV?

There are many misunderstandings about why a survivor of sexual abuse would choose to file a civil lawsuit.   Child sexual abuse takes away so much from the survivors and families impacted. Our society still struggles to find ways to repair the harm done by individual perpetrators and institutions that have covered up child sexual abuse.  Outdated statutes of limitations across our country leave far too many survivors denied access to our criminal or civil justice courts.

Filing a civil case can be an essential step for survivors and their families in their journey to slowly rebuild their lives and create pathways to healing.  Motivation for filing a civil suit is often questioned and unfairly stereotyped as being “all about money. Filing a civil lawsuit can cast survivors as “money hungry” and is weaponized to shame and blame them even more. This couldn’t be further from the truth for survivors of child sexual abuse. The civil justice system offers victims more than just monetary benefits.  It gives survivors access to justice, validation, exposure, confrontation, and ultimately some resolution. The resolution allows survivors of sexual abuse to understand and process what happened and create a new path forward without confusion, questions, and fear.
