Childhood Sexual Abuse Statute of Limitations

Posted by Jesse (rockon) on February 07, 2003 at 08:06:16

I was amazed to find out how short the statute of limitations on childhood sexual abuse is in some states. In New Jersey it is currently 2 years. In Massachusetts it is 3 years. But in Connecticut itís 40 years.
New Jersey is considering replealing the Statute of Limitations on childhood sexual abuse. Anyone who has the time should write or email legislatures in New Jersey to encourage them to do so.
Here is the URL of a law firm with a link to addresses and URL links to the New Jersey legistature.
Also if anyone knows anything about how the people who are suing the Catholic Church in Massachusetts are able to overcome the statute of limitations in that state please let me know
