Reply To: A not-so-surprising consequence of sexual hysteria: presumed guilt


I would think, this would be a good time to lobby Congress. To start putting statute limitations on accusations. I understand that some victims wont speak out, for years but there should be a statute to keep these kinda of accusations from ruining lives. Congress, should take a close look now , especially at the stigma, that a simple accusation of sexual assault can do to destroy ones creditably. Giving a life of stigma and guilty rulings from juries, as well as prosecutors, neighbors, colleagues, anyone that hears the statement against the accused. Then after prison you are marked for life, with the registry and all the restrictions ever after. I just believe if enough noise is made about this now, there may be hope getting constitutional reform!
