Perpetrators

Natalie Sorrells, 44, a youth volunteer at Lakepointe Church, a megachurch near Dallas, is facing charges of two counts of aggravated sexual assault of a child and two counts of indecency with child sexual contact on February 20, the records from the Department of Public Safety in Heath, Texas, state. In reports, Sorrells sent sexual text messages, provided alcohol to a 13-year-old boy, and sexually assaulted in several times.

Lakepointe Church has six locations throughout the Dallas area and has indicated that they do not believe the assaults took place on church property. What we know about sex offenders is they seek position of authority around children, it is logical to that there could be other victims among the children she engaged.

How Can A Civil Lawsuit Help Victims Seek Justice For The Trauma They May Have Experienced By Natalie Sorrells?

There are many misunderstandings about why a survivor of sexual abuse would choose to file a civil lawsuit.   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 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 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 ultimately some resolution.
