NY Bill Would Eliminate Statute of Limitations for Child Abuse

A group of advocates is asking New York state lawmakers to eliminate the statute of limitations on instances of abuse committed against minors.

From the Associated Press:

Legislation that would eliminate the time restraints on the reporting of CSA is pending in the state’s Legislature.

Advocates plan to gather at the Capitol on Wednesday to meet with lawmakers and speak out in favor of the change.

Under the state’s current law, for charges to be brought a victim typically must report the allegations before they turn 23.
