Civil Rights Attorney on Statute of Limitations Regarding Sexual Crimes

How does a man defend himself over criminally sexual behavior that may have happened years ago?

It’s one question that comes up more frequently since the fall of former disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein. He’s now been charged with three additional felonies, and one of the charges is so serious, it could put him behind bars for life.

There’s also another question: What to do if there’s proof that one is guilty, yet the statute of limitations has expired over those charges? It’s especially upsetting for those who were victimized as children and are now just coming forward as adults.

Civil rights attorney Gloria Allred says sexually abused victims should always have a source of recourse, no matter what how much time has passed.

“Where they can attempt to put the lower burden of proof to prove that the accused person did victimize them sexually when they were children and did or rape them and let’s make that wrongdoer or accused person accountable at least in the civil system if not in the criminal system. It’s all about access to justice for victims. That’s what I’m all about.”

Allred was a guest on McIntyre in the Morning.
