M.E.D.I.A  A.D.V.I.S.O.R.Y


Three-Day Push for Bill to Give Child Sex Abuse Victims More Time to
Get Justice, Expose Hidden Pedophiles; Press Events and Lobby Day to
Feature Victims and Advocates, Including Former Syracuse Ball-boys

Assemblywoman Margaret Markey will hold three events next week in Albany to focus the attention of the Legislature and Governor on her Child Victims Act of NY legislation (A5488). The bill will give victims of abuse more time to get justice and it will expose pedophiles who have previously been hidden. The programs are:

Tuesday, February 28, 2012, 2:00 p.m.

Wednesday, February 29, 2012, 1:00 p.m.

Thursday, March 1, 2012, 1:00 p.m.
All in LOB Press Room, NYS State Legislative Office Building
Empire State Plaza, Albany, NY

At the press conference on Tuesday, February 28, 2:00 p.m., Markey will introduce victims in sports-related cases, including two men who charge they were abused as ball boys by by a Syracuse University assistant basketball coach and several men who reported they were abused by a coach when they were students at a prestigious private school in New York City.

The following day, Wednesday, February 29, will be CVA Lobby Day as the supporters of the bill from across New York State will be in Albany to call on Assemblymembers and Senators and ask them to support the bill. At a press conference at 1:00 pm, the Assemblywoman will stand with victims of abuse at the hands of religious organizations who will talk about their ordeals. Speakers will include victims who successfully took their case against a pedophile to neighboring Massachusetts courts when they couldn’t get justice in New York and a young man who suffered abuse at the hands of a yeshiva rabbi in Brooklyn. On Thursday, March 1, 1:00 p.m., the focus will be on broader legal and social issues relating to statutes of limitations and speakers will include a past president of the New York State Bar Association.

“Laws in New York are so lax that many perpetrators evade exposure by waiting out the short statute of limitations. I want to change that because pedophiles who are not exposed
will continue to abuse yet more children in the future,” the Assemblywoman said.

Markey’s Child Victims Act has been adopted by the Assembly three times, but failed to succeed in the State Senate. The bill will extend the current statute of limitations by five years, to age 28 and will also completely suspend the civil statute of limitations for one year. This will help expose older crimes and make it possible to identify previously hidden abusers through the discovery process in court, exposing them, ensuring that they can never abuse a child again.
