Michigan lawmakers seek to remove statute of limitations on child sexual abuse


LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) – Michigan lawmakers are looking to make it easier to pursue those who have sexually abused a child.

A Senate bill introduced to the Committee on Judiciary would remove the statute of limitations on child sexual abuse.

It would do this by adding any act of sexual abuse against a minor to a list of crimes that have a window of prosecution that does not expire.

Other crimes on the list include murder and terrorism.
