Drive to fix MO’s outdated & harmful statute of limitations


April 19, 2024

By David G. Clohessy

Earlier this week, I was proud to join other brave survivors and caring advocates at a legislative hearing in Jefferson City. The topic: Eliminating or extending Missouri’s archaic, arbitrary and predator-friendly statute of limitations on child sexual abuse.

Many spoke well and movingly. But among the most compelling was my long time friend Ken Chackes, who is one of the very most experienced – and compassionate – attorneys who help abuse survivors. I’m grateful that he’s given me permission to post his wise words here.
