Thanks in part to new legislation, sexual offenses in Pennsylvania against minors have been given more years for the minors to bring charges against the culprit. Under the new changes, if a sexual offense occurred against a minor, who was born before August of 2002, the minor will have 32 years after their 18th birthday to bring the criminal charges before the court. Although this extension of time, in theory, should help the victims, it allows for valuable evidence and testimony to be lost or forgotten  before the charges are ever brought against the individual. If you are charged with these crimes, it is important that you hire the right attorney to help you, feel free to contact our office at 610-891-8303 to discuss your case.
