Violence

Hi Amy, I am not sure how long ago this message was posted regarding a 20 year old sexually assaulted when she was 17 by a 29 year old man.

I just want to clarify that in cases regarding sexual violence or domestic violence in Ohio, your readers could always call the Ohio Coalition On Sexual Assault at 614.781.1902 or the Ohio Domestic Violence Network at 614.781.9651.

FYI...In Ohio, we do have a 20 year statute of limitation on sexual assault. The law took effect in 1999, and grandfathers in cases from 1993 onward. Though I agree that the legal case may not go too far in the case above, it could provide a basis of a pattern of behavior of abuse by this man which may aid law enforcement in other cases.

Thanks for all the work you do!
