CSC Statue of Limitations

Posted by Sandra On June - 25 - 2012

What is “Statute of Limitations?”
A statute of limitations (or SOL), simply, is the maximum amount of time one has to bring a lawsuit from the time of the injury or other ground for a lawsuit. SOLs vary from state to state and from claim to claim. The statute of limitations may also be set to begin running at different times. Some SOLs begin running at the time of the injury and others begin running when the injury is discovered. In cases with minors, the SOL is “tolled” or doesn’t begin to run until the minor turns 18. Some states, like Delaware and Florida, have eliminated the statue of limitations for child sexual abuse altogether; others also have a “discovery rule” which simply states that the statue of limitations do not begin to run until a claim “accrues.” (instead of the original date of injury)

There are two ways in which a CSC case can be charged. The first is CIVIL: civil claims are brought on by the VICTIMS to recover for their injuries. The second is CRIMINAL: criminal cases are brought on by prosecutors and are punishable by state laws and guidelines.
