When Hannibal Buress Called Bill Cosby a Rapist and Helped Topple an Icon. : entertainment

There isn’t a statute of limitations on murder, and there shouldn’t be a statue limitations on sexual assault.

This man is only free because the statue limitations ran out in the states he committed these assaults and so he can’t be prosecuted.

34 states and Washington, DC, have statutes of limitations on filing rape or sexual-assault charges, ranging from 3 to 30 years.

So if you are sexually assaulted at the age of 11 years old and you do not report it till you’re 15 years old the statue orientations has run out in Illinois.

In California victims have 10 years to come forward and report a sexual assault. Many of the victims coming forward are from decades of abuse, but because of the various statute of limitation the DAs in the districts are unable to file charges against Cosby.

This is a national disgrace and the only way to fix it would be to turn sexual assault into a federal crime which with that have no statute of limitations.
