Kevin Thorpe, Former Hanna Boys Center Counselor Arrested Sexual Assault on Teen

sex crime chargesSANTA ROSA, California (June 14, 2017) — Kevin Scott Thorpe, 39, of Rohnert Park, a 14-year employee at Hanna Boys Center where he was a counselor and youth minister, has been arrested for allegedly sexually assaulting a teenager between 2006 and 2011 at the Catholic center for at-risk youth where he was working.

He is being held in the Sonoma County Jail on $300,000 bail and faces charges of lewd and lascivious acts with a minor and sexual assault of a minor. Specifically, Thorpe is accused of  three counts of oral copulation by force during a one-year period committed under duress or by fear.

According to the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Department, Thorpe committed these sexual assault crimes on the teenager who was housed at the Sonoma Valley facility and police believe there could be more victims. The sexual crimes took place on campus as well as at Thorpe’s home in Sonoma Valley.

The accuser, who is now 23 years old, had not previously reported the crimes because he didn’t want to be expelled from the boys home. However, now he is an adult, the victim wanted to stop his abuser from harming other boys and reported the crime to police around June 1st. Thorpe was arrested at his home on Saturday.

The Sonoma County Sheriff’s Department is asking other victims or witnesses to come forward by calling them at 707-565-4300.

The Hanna Boys Center has been tied to sexual abuse claims in the past. Angelica Malinski, a 22-year-old female counselor at the center, was fired about six months ago after it was discovered she allegedly had sexual intercourse with a 17-year-old male housed at the facility last fall. The incident allegedly took place on the grounds of the Hanna Boys Center.

Additionally, the Hanna Boys Center is facing a whistle blower lawsuit from Timothy Norman, a clinical director who made numerous complaints to operators of the 70-year-old home about not protecting children under their care from acts of bullying. The claims were denied by the Hanna Boys Center.

Every personal injury case is unique and many factors are used to value each case. The losses from your claim include the amount of the medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, etc. The most important factor is your life change resulting from the injury. Typically, the larger the injury and life change, the larger the settlement. We discuss your personal injury claim’s worth during your free consultation.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.

The length of a personal injury case depends on many factors including the evaluation and treatment of the injury. The bigger the injury, the longer it takes to treat. Attorney James Johnson helps you be aggressive with the treatment, so the average case normally takes between two and five months. Those who have serious injuries and need surgery may take several months longer. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Many victims believe if you don't have health insurance you don't have a case - this NOT true. In fact, those with health insurance usually don't use it since there are so many restrictions and steps to overcome to receive authorization for treatment. Johnson Attorneys Group assists you in finding the best doctors to help. Most of them even wait until a settlement for payment. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use. This information can negatively impact and de-value your case. Once your case is damaged, it is very difficult to repair it and usually costs you thousands of dollars less in a settlement. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
You do not pay anything unless you win. We work on a contingency-fee-basis, so we’re only paid if we win your case. When the case is settled, our fee is a percentage, as previously agreed, of the final settlement. These fees are described in full detail in our signed contract before work begins on the case. We cover the case upfront costs including everything from copying and court filing fees to hiring experts - so all your focus can be on getting well.
