State Statute of Limitations Law and Reform
THE TALE is a common story that shows a woman who only begins to recognize her abuse when she is middle-aged. Whether one wants to prosecute one’s perpetrator is a matter of choice, but often the laws don’t take into account the time it takes many to face and speak about their sexual abuse. Each state in the USA and every country has a different Statue of Limitation Law. In the USA, the bulk of the work of Statute of Limitation reform happens on the state level. Every state has a different Statute of Limitation for sexual abuse and assault. Get involved in pushing the time limit allowed to bring perpetrators to justice.
