NY sexual abuse law

A new law in New York state, the Child Victims Act allows those who were victims of sexual assault as a minor more time to report crimes – until age 28. The law also allows more time for victims to sue alleged perpetrators or negligent institutions – until age 55.

Previously, the age limit for both types of cases was 23 with an exemption only for the most serious felonies.

The law also opens up a one-year window for victims of any age to file civil law suits, no matter how long ago the abuse occurred. This window opens on Aug. 14.
