Bill would extend statute of limitations for child sex abuse claims
Victims of childhood sexual abuse would have additional time to seek damages from their abusers under legislation introduced in the Georgia House on Monday.
The bill, which has bipartisan support, also provides a two-year window for past victims to seek damages if they have not yet come forward.
The bill would apply to victims of rape, sodomy, child molestation, pandering, incest and sexual battery.
Finally, victims of childhood sexual abuse would have access to records of any investigation related to the case. .
