‘Big News: Hawaii Civil Window for child sex abuse victims EXTENDED; Includes public schools’

By Joelle Casteix
The Worthy Adversary
June 21, 2014

Hawaii Governor Neil Abercrombie just signed a law that extends Hawaii’s two-year civil window for sex abuse victims.

But there’s more: victims in public schools are NOW eligible for accountability under the new law. For the first time, sex offenders in public schools and the people who covered up for them—including powerful unions and other gov’t officials—are liable for the crimes of predatory gov’t employees.

Thank you Senator Maile Shimabukuro for your tireless work on behalf of victims.
