With all the Penn State headlines, how long it went on, and how long ago some of the victims have said it happened to them, I started wondering. Is there a statute of limitations for such crimes? If someone is molested at 5-10 years old and decides to come forward for whatever reason at 20, where's the line where they say "Oh, that's terrible but we can't do anything now"? Or is it like murder and there is no limitation?

Statute for molestation should be when the victim reaches the age of 22. This gives them time to be oht of high school and possibly college as well. All others in light of all the recent "me too" bandwagons we've seen i.e. Herman Cain should be set at 5 years if the victim has already reached the age of 18. But that is my. 02

ETA: it varies by state. In PA the child victim has until they reach the age of 50

There is no statute of limitations for child molestation in TN or VA. TN charged and convicted an ex-priest last year for the crimes he committed 20+ years ago. The Commonwealth of VA wants him now for acts he committed when he took them across state lines.

I'm against molesters, but I'm also against false accusers.

If only there were a way to punish both...

false accusers should serve the same time the accused would have gotten if found guilty

Child Abuse Statute of Limitations for each State in the United States

The statute of limitations, or the time that must expire before legal proceedings can no longer be initiated, differs for each state.
In many cases it can be very confusing.
Below are the statute of limitations for child abuse civil and criminal cases for each state in the United States.

http://angelroar.com/foradults/c-child-abuse-resources-adults/childabusestatuteoflimitationsbystate

In my mind there should be no Statute of Limitations for crimes against children

I find it abominable you or anyone else would give a child rapist/molester a get out of jail card.

It's there for evidence reasons. As time passes people forget details and there is an increased risk of false convictions. Someone could accuse you of something and you might have an iron clad alibi, but what are the odds that you would remember it?

You know, I always thought you were a great guy because of the time you've spent and patience you've shown in your cooking threads but, I had no idea you were also a hero.

Thanks for reminding me I'm not done becoming a good person yet. Thanks, also, for what you've done for those kids.

Or they just misremember something. I'm not sure I would screw someone's life up because someone thinks they remember something happening 20 plus years ago. Also these days a lot of criminals claim to be child abuse victims when it comes time for sentencing. I'd think twice about turning someone's life upside down because 20 years ago they had a neighbor who grew up into a piece of shit who needed something to create sympathy for them at sentencing.

I like the way you think.Sadly the law doesn't. I'm mainly asking because a coworker of mine has reported the possibility of a neighbor abusing their kid and nothing has been done. Curiosity made me start thinking worst case scenarios, and wonder how long the girl has to report things on her own.

ETA-What I just posted is all the details I know, he wouldn't share any more, as much as he hates the situation the girl's in he was still watching out for her privacy too(apparently she confided in him and that's how he found out.)

If you're asking if there's something in my past, no. If you're asking why I'd ask this, take my post above this one and add it to the news reports of now-adult child molestation victims. That's where the question comes from.

He called DHS( Dept of Human Services,our version of CPS), and gotten a less than desirable response. This is the same department that my brother is dealing with in a custody fight, and the crazy ex girlfriend can do no wrong in their eyes, even though she has a criminal record as long as my arm(drugs, theft, trespassing, assaults). If you have a suggestion of who he can contact beyond local police and DHS let me know and I'll pass it on. He's definitely interested in a way to help the girl that does not end in a prison sentence for himself. He's just fed up with local channels and asked me for advice.
