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 Elementary School Teacher Charged for Lewd Behavior with Students

Dec 18, 2017 - News by

San Mateo, CA – Anthony Satriano, 33, was arrested earlier in the year and recently charged with 16 felonies due to inappropriate photos he took of at least five female students at St. Matthews Episcopal Day School. 

Satriano pled guilty to child molestation, attempted child molestation and using a minor for sexual purposes.  Prosecutors believe Satriano held private photo sessions at the school with the 5 to 8 year-old girls.  Authorities found thousands of photos of students.

The authorities were notified of the lewd behavior when one student told her mother Satriano wanted her to wear a specific pair of tights to school.  The mother told KTVU that her daughter has stomach aches every time she hears of the now former teacher’s name.  Parents are in disbelief that the near $30,000 per year day school would fail as such to protect their children.

The head of the school sent a statement to KTVU which said, “St. Matthew’s Episcopal Day School remains absolutely committed to providing a safe, caring community.”

Satriano faces up to eight years in prison.

Schools need to use better measures to keep students safe.
