Who Is Justin Biser?
Justin Biser, a 44-year-old Youth Baseball coach with The Waynesboro Youth League in Franklin County, PA, was arrested for sexually assaulting two teenage girls. Biser is well-known in the community and used his position to prey upon his victims.
Biser is charged with:
- statutory sexual assault
- involuntary deviant sexual intercourse
- aggravated indecent assault
- sexual assault
- and related offenses.
Given the nature of exposure Biser has had to children, there is a high likelihood of other victims. The Pennsylvania Attorney General’s Office asks anyone with additional information to come forward.
We realize how scary disclosing these types of crimes can be. You are not alone.

How Can A Civil Lawsuit Help Victims Seek Justice For The Trauma They May Have Experienced By Justin Biser?
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.
