Australia's Statute of Limitations for Child Abuse?
(Victoria, Australia )
I was just wondering what the Statute of Limitations on child abuse is? I was abused in 1999, and she got away with it as I was too young to be put on the stand. The sexual abuse still affects me today, especially in my relationships and my trust. I was also wondering if it was possible to have her tried in court again.
