New York times reports that Texas millionaire, Stanley Marsh, has settled several lawsuits which accused him of trading sexual favors with underage girls for money, cars and other items.  Sexual assault and sexual relations with minors charges are still pending in the criminal court system.  This story is an indication of how the civil justice system and a civil sexual assault victim's attorney can, oftentimes, obtain justice for the victims of sexual assault quicker than the criminal justice system can do.
