USA Swimming Abuse

Indiana Sexual Abuse Attorneys – (888) 204-8440

Wagner Reese proudly represents members of USA Swimming who have been sexually abused by their coaches. Olympic swimmer Ariana Kukors Smith came forth in May 2018 with her story of repeated sexual abuse from her coach, Sean Hutchison. She has shared how difficult it can be to speak up against someone in a position of power, but she is also acting as an encouraging beacon for all others in USA Swimming to share their stories and seek justice.

Our Indiana sexual abuse lawyers are here to act as your voice and to give you courage. Through a successful civil claim against your abuser and possibly USA Swimming, you may be able to collect compensation to help you find financial stability, peace of mind, and closure.

Call (888) 204-8440 to arrange a free, confidential consultation with our attorneys today.

Were You Sexually Abused by Your USA Swimming Coach?

As Ms. Kukors Smith has shared, sexual abuse from a person in authority can be difficult to recognize. Many abusers are also manipulators, taking careful steps to grow close to the people they abuse to try to mask their intentions and cloud their actions. Do you suspect you have been sexually abused by your USA Swimming coach but are not certain what constitutes abuse?

Sexual abuse comes in many forms, including:

  • Unwanted sexual contact or actions
  • Light, unwelcome physical touching, sometimes in public
  • Taking or demanding sexually suggestive photographs
  • “Grooming” to slowly manipulate the victim

USA Swimming May Be Liable for the Abuse

According to Ms. Kukors Smith, USA Swimming, the National Governing Body for swimming in the country, knew that her coach had been abusing her since she was 16 and “grooming” her since she was 13. She alleges the organization conducted fabricated, one-sided investigations into complaints to protect itself and Coach Hutchinson. If true, then USA Swimming may also be responsible for damages she has suffered — and the same might be applicable for your claim as well.
