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.

For more information on the act and if you feel that a claim can be revived, contact us today.

Former Day Care Worker Sentenced for Child Molestation

Renton, WA – Ivan Jovahnni Anaya, 22, received 15 months in prison for molesting a 4-year-old female student at The Orchards ChildCare and Preschool.

Anaya was charged and pleaded guilty to third-degree assault with sexual motivation and communication with a minor for immoral purposes.

The daycare center at the Nazarene School was notified of the assault in 2016 when a parent called reporting Anaya had stuck his tongue in the mouth of her child.  Anaya was immediately placed on leave pending the investigation.  Since then, two other victims came forward.  One of the children told detectives Anaya put his hand in her underwear and molested her.

In addition to the 15 months of prison, Anaya was ordered to undergo 36 months of community custody, register as a sex offender and complete sexual deviancy treatment.

Daycare centers are meant to be a safe place for all children.
