Victims of Childhood Sexual Abuse

This week, a jury found Jerry Sandusky the former Penn State assistant football coach guilty of 45 of 48 criminal counts of molesting 10 boys over a 15-year period of time. It is alleged that Sandusky met the boys through a charity he founded called The Second Mile. The victims have also filed civil law suits alleging negligence against both the charity and the educational institution.

Surgical fires remain a problem in operating rooms across the country

In April, we wrote about a woman who filed a lawsuit against a physician and hospital after she suffered third-degree burns on her stomach from a surgical fire during a cesarean section. Although this seems like it would be an isolated incident, Baltimore residents may be shocked to find out that the Food and Drug Administration says about 550 to 650 surgical fires occur each year in operating rooms all over the county.

Launch of law enforcement program will help reduce accidents
