number of individuals within the state have been unable to seek  redress
for  sexual abuse suffered as a child. Due to the unique nature of child
sexual abuse and fears of reprisal, child victims often suffer for years
in silence and are often unable to comprehend the fact  that  they  have
been  victimized.  This  can  lead  to repression of the abuse and often
results in the victim's confusion,  anger  and  associated  difficulties
later  in life. Due to the nature of abuse a victim has been subject to,
and their perceived or actual inability to pursue legal  action  at  the
time of the abuse, many victims have been psychologically unable to file
a  civil  litigation  claim within the requisite statute of limitations.
Due to the amount of time that may have transpired since the instance or
instances of abuse, the claim may no longer be pursued  through  typical

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
