FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – SEPTEMBER 27, 2018
PECKVILLE – This week the Pennsylvania House of Representatives voted overwhelmingly in favor of an amendment to Senate Bill 261. The amendment temporarily does away with the statute of limitations for select cases of child sexual abuse, providing adults over the age of 30 an immediate two-year window to sue their alleged abusers.
Candidate for State Representative of Pennsylvania’s 112th District, Kyle Mullins, released the following statement upon the bill’s passage:
“For any child whose once ordinary life is devastated by an act of sexual abuse or violence, the trauma never goes away. It pursues you, it torments you, for the rest of your life.
“This is why I am encouraged by the Pennsylvania House of Representative’s decisive support for the amendment to Senate Bill 261. When elected to the PA House, this is exactly the kind of legislation I will wholeheartedly support.
“After all, there is no statute of limitations placed upon some of the most heinous crimes. It is my belief that heinous crimes involving sexual assault and abuse should be treated no differently.”
