Who’s opposed to giving child sex abuse victims more time to file lawsuits?
Should victims of child sex abuse be able to sue their abusers decades later?
The New York State Legislature is considering extending the statute of limitations on child sex crimes but there are some big organizations spending thousands of dollars to fight it.
Currently, someone who is sexually abused as a child has until the age of 23 to press criminal charges against his or her abuser. Under the proposed legislation, a victim would have until his 28thbirthday to file criminal charges and his 50th birthday to file civil charges.
