New York Child Victims Act

The New York Child Victims Act makes a necessary change to long standing precedent in statutes of limitations in child sexual assault cases. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has made this Act one of his top initiatives for 2018-19, and after the Legislature voted to approve the legislation on Monday Jan 28th,2019, it now heads to the Governor’s desk for his signature.

The Child Victims Act will extend the statute of limitations on child sexual abuse crimes to the age of 28 in criminal cases and the age of 50 in civil cases, with a one year-window to bring civil claims for victims below that age limit.

DC Jewish preschool faces sexual abuse allegations

WASHINGTON — An employee at the Washington Hebrew Congregation in Northwest D.C. has been placed on administrative leave following allegations of sexual abuse involving one or more children at the Macomb Street Edlavitch-Tyser Early Childhood Center.

The abuse is believed to have happened between September 2017 and August 2018.

In a letter sent home to parents on Aug. 19, the temple informed families about the allegations.

 

“We are deeply troubled by the allegations and are addressing them utilizing internal and external resources. Likewise, we are working closely with the affected families to provide information, counseling and support,” the letter said.

The temple contacted child protective services and law enforcement and has since launched an internal investigation into the allegations.

“We are deeply troubled by the allegations and are addressing them utilizing internal and external resources,” the letter said.
