Illinois Attorney General Asks to End Statute of Limitations for Child Sexual Abuse

Wake up Illinois!

CHICAGO, Ill. (KWQC) – Attorney General Lisa Madigan and the Illinois Coalition Against Sexual Assault are calling on on Illinois lawmakers to eliminate the statute of limitations for felony criminal sexual assault and sexual abuse crimes against children.

Madigan and the advocacy group say Illinois law should allow children who have been victims of sexual assault and abuse the time to come forward and report their crimes.

The statement was issued in wake of the sentencing of former House Speaker and Illinois Congressman Dennis Hastert. This week, He was sentenced to 15 months in a federal hush-money case. He pleaded guilty to breaking banking law while trying to pay someone millions to conceal sexual abuse that occurred while he was a high school coach.

He was never charged with child sex abuse despite admitting it, because the statute of limitations had run out. Were it not for the hush-money, he would never have served a moment in jail.

Illinois needs to get rid of this dumb and cruel law that re-victimizes child sex abuse survivors. And so does every other jurisdiction that still has one.
