Grand jury looming in statute of limitations fight
Spoiler alert: Neo escapes.
Second spoiler alert: Some state senators may not be so lucky.
The Senate rushed through a bill recently that would extend or eliminate Pennsylvania criminal and civil statutes of limitations for child sex abuse survivors but would block many past victims from court access. It was the same bill it passed last year, only to see it die in the state House.
Why the rush to pass it again? That’s where the sound of inevitability comes in.
Last year marked the first time legislative leaders allowed votes on child sex abuse statute of limitations bills, which in the past always have remained buried in committee because of powerful opposition from the Catholic Church and Insurance Federation.
1 in 5 New York Kids Are Sexually Abused. Help Prevent That
The CDC reports that 1 in 5 children are sexually abused.
9 out of 10 of the perpetrators are never brought to justice and never appear on sex offender registries.
They are protected by New York State laws.
Sign this petition and change that. Protect NY Kids.
