Perpetrators

Kenneth Haygood, 54, is currently facing serious charges related to alleged sexual assaults. Haygood was arrested on Tuesday and faces three counts of sexual assault and one count of aggravated sexual assault of a child. He is currently in custody at the Smith County Jail, with a bond set at $3.55 million.  Charges stem from accusations of assaulting an 8-year-old child in 2007 and three adult women in 2018 and 2019.

Kenneth Haygood’s License Restrictions:

The authorities initiated an investigation in November of 2023, and their findings led to the Texas Medical Board restricting Haygood’s license in June of the same year, citing complaints of inappropriate conduct. As a result, Haygood is prohibited from seeing, examining, or treating female patients.

Alleged Methods of Assault:

According to investigators, victims have reported disturbing encounters with Haygood, who allegedly sexually assaulted them under the guise of medical procedures. Victims claim that Haygood misrepresented these assaults as routine thyroid checks, therapeutic massages, and examinations. It’s essential to be aware of these reported methods and remain vigilant when seeking medical care.

Impact of Health Care Abuse

Sexual assault at the hands of a medical professional is a profound betrayal. It shatters the trust and vulnerability inherent in the patient-doctor relationship. Patients often turn to healthcare providers seeking care, comfort, and healing, placing immense trust in those dedicated to their well-being. As a result, when this trust is violated, survivors grapple with emotional turmoil, shame, and a loss of faith in the medical system. Addressing such violations is crucial for the survivor’s healing, maintaining the integrity of the healthcare profession, and ensuring a safe environment for all patients.

How Can A Civil Lawsuit Help Victims Seek Justice For The Trauma They May Have Experienced by Kenneth Haygood?

There are many misunderstandings about why a survivor of sexual abuse would choose to file a civil lawsuit.   Sexual assault 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 it up.

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 “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 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.
