Prosecutors in several states are finding an important loophole in the statutes of limitations that stops them from charging priests with sexual abuse that occurred decades ago.

For once the courts are working for the victims.

Babs,

Thanks so much for this article. I have forwarded it on to my attorney. My Church (Presbyterian) is taking the stand that I needed to "report" the crime at the time it happened. SHIT .... The perp told me that it was "therapy" and I believed him. It wasn't until 10 years after he raped me that I realized that it was RAPE.
