Who Is Dustan Mohr?
Dustin Mohr, 47, a former Major League Baseball player and coach at Northrop High School, is charged with sexual abuse of a child.

The 13-year-old victim states that he touched her sexually multiple times during training sessions and provided her with a cell phone to communicate with him. The phone was loaded with inappropriate images of Mohr.

- Level 6 Dissemination of matter or conducting performance harmful to minors
- Level 5 Child Seduction
- Level 5 Sexual Misconduct with a minor

How Can A Civil Lawsuit Help Victims Seek Justice For The Trauma They May Have Experienced By Dustan Mohr?
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.
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 questioned and unfairly stereotyped as “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.
