To abusive criminal activity California limitation may not apply to more
In the American state of California get victims of abusive criminal activity more time to report. Wednesday is a law signed by which the period of limitation of 10 years is due to expire.
Reason for the new law is the lawsuit against the comedian Bill Cosby. Many women say decades ago by Cosby to be drugged and abused, or raped, but he can not be prosecuted, because this matters now statute-barred.
The bill is not retroactive, so most of the women who have registered against Cosby, there can be no make use of.
In June starts a lawsuit for alleged abuse that in 2004 would have taken place. Cosby has all the allegations denied. According to the American public prosecutor is only 2 percent of the perpetrators of a zedenmisdrijf eventually convicted.
