California La Luz del Mundo Sexual Abuse Attorney

The leader of the Mexico-based mega-church La Luz del Mundo (LLDM), Naason Joaquin Garcia, is facing serious criminal charges of  human trafficking, child rape, and child pornography here in California. To help put an end to the longstanding cycle of exploitation and abuse reported to exist within LLDM, in early 2020, representing Sochil Martin, Greenberg Gross filed a lawsuit against LLDM as an institution, as well as against Garcia and others, for violation of human trafficking and racketeering (RICO) statutes and several other federal and state laws.

Here, we will discuss those charges, as well as how victims can proceed with civil cases against LLDM, Garcia, and others who have perpetrated or assisted with the perpetration of crimes, civil wrongs, and the exploitation of its members. The California La Luz del Mundo sexual abuse attorneys at Greenberg Gross LLP can help survivors of sexual abuse gain the closure, justice, and compensation they deserve.

Understanding La Luz del Mundo Sexual Abuse Cases

The California State Attorney General’s Office has filed three dozen felony counts against Naason Joaquin Garcia, including the forcible rape of a minor, forcible oral copulation of a person under 18, unlawful sexual intercourse, committing a lewd act on a child, conspiracy, and possession of child pornography.  Garcia’s criminal trial has been delayed and continued numerous times, but is currently scheduled to start on May 9, 2022.

While the State’s charges against Garcia concern criminal behavior, they lend significant weight to any civil claims that may be made by survivors of Garcia’s abuse. The full extent and range of Garcia’s abuse is not yet known, but reports indicate the existence of hundreds of sexual assault survivors in the United States and around the world.
