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.

Voice of Elmo Resigns Amid Sexual Abuse Lawsuit Filed by Jeff Herman

Woman: We had a sexual relationship but we did not have intercourse until years later.

Interviewer 1: [Inaudible 00:00:10] What does that mean? You had a sexual relationship but you didn’t have intercourse until years later?

Woman: I’ll answer it, it’s fine. Groping, masturbation, just a lot of intense kissing, touching, that kind of thing, dry humping but we did not have sex and it’s imperative to note that. We did not have sexual intercourse, excuse me, until years later when I was an adult. I broke it off two weeks into my initial relationship with Kevin at 15 mainly because I just remember telling myself that he seemed to really like me and I remember just telling myself “Let me spare him now because I know that I can’t do this.” If I had to make an educated guess and say if we had stayed together, we more than likely would have had sex at that age.

Interviewer 1: So how long did you have this groping relationship with him? How many years or months did this go on?

Woman: About two weeks.

Interviewer 1: Two weeks.

Woman: Yeah.

Interviewer 1: So…
