Senator Murphy comments on Child Victims Act
SHRUB OAK, NY - State Senator Terrence Murphy commented today on the prospects of passing a Child Victims Act in the 2018 legislative session. While acknowledging the previous iteration of the Act raised due process concerns with its provisions to give an unlimited look-back time frame, Senator Murphy said:
"To the victims of childhood sexual abuse: we believe you. We support you. You're not alone, and while you are dealing with something terrible, legislators are looking at solutions. You are trailblazers, and we are going to fight to lengthen the statute of limitations for the future to protect all New Yorkers."
