Statement of Senator Tom Killion Regarding the Passage of Reform to the Statute of Limitations on Child Sex Abuse

Senator Tom Killion (R-Chester and Delaware) released the following statement on the passage of a legislative package reforming the statute of limitations for childhood sexual abuse:

'There is no more heinous offense than one committed against a child. For decades, Catholic bishops have systematically protected and shielded predator priests from criminal prosecution and civil penalties. With the package of bills passed by the Senate today, a path has been established to hold to account the abusers of those who have been denied justice as well as those who enabled that abuse. I am proud to have voted for these four important bills and stand in solidarity with those who cry out for justice.'
