Child sex abuse, the patterns of their predators, and all that jazz has been quite a topic of discussion. Like New York weather, the 2016 legislative season is heating up!
Neal Huff, Phil Saviano, Marge Markey, Josh Singer and Sen Kennedy in Albany, New York in support of the New York Child Victims Act (CVA) May 4th.
The following child sex abuse statute of limitation bills are pending in the New York Legislature. The statute of limitations is how long a victim of child sex abuse has to come forward and sue their rapist and in civil cases, others who enabled the rape and subsequent cover-up. A window means a “window” will open up for a year where survivors whose time to come forward has expired will have one year to come forward during the window and file a civil lawsuit.
2016 Pending Bill Summary in New York:
Assembly Bill 2872A A. 2872A (civil elimination of child sex abuse statute of limitations in New York and 1-year window to identify previous abuse in New York)
