Herman Law Back Child Victim Act

The Child Victim Act is being supported by actor Cory Feldman and a US volleyball star named Sarah Power-Barnhard. A group that is pushing hard to have the bill passed in New York is called New Yorkers Against Predators. Feldman hopes to pressures legislators trying to keep the bill off the Senate floor for debate.
This bill would eliminate both civil and criminal statutes of limitations in child sexual abuse cases in New York. It would allow 50 year old cases to be heard. The statue of limitations for most cases have to be file within five years of the crime. Most people have one year to sue an individual unless they belong to a church or a school.

The five year limitation does not begin until a person turns 18 year old. Several versions of the Child Victim Act has been passed in recent years. About 90% of New Yorkers support this bill being passed.
