The Ohio Supreme Court recently held that children sexually assaulted at state agencies have a 12 year statute of limitations, rather than 2, to file suit. The Court ruled in favor of a 14 year old child who alleged that she was sexually abused at the Scioto Juvenile Correctional Facility in Delaware, Ohio. A general statute of limitations of 2 years to sue the state was ruled inapplicable.

Unfortunately, current Ohio law protects the civil rights of many child molesters, while limiting the rights of sexually abused children. The Fitch Law Firm is currently seeking to challenge, before the Ohio Supreme Court, this legislation, which the firm refers to as the “child molester protection act.”
