Corey Feldman was in Albany Wednesday to ensure that the child-sex predators are brought to justice.

The “Stand By Me” actor and child-sex-abuse survivor, 46, joined the lawyers in the capital on a bill that gives the victim more time to prosecute the perpetrators.

Current state law cuts the victims the possibility to complain when they are 23 years old.

“As someone who was failed by the justice system because of a restrictive statute of limitations, I am proud to stand with so many survivors today to try to pass common-sense legislation,” said Feldman.

The child Victims Act would also create a one-year window for previously not claims to be heard in court.
