Amanda Grady Sexton, director of public affairs for the New Hampshire Coalition Against Domestic & Sexual Violence, said the state recently change the statute of limitations for abuse victims.
“The New Hampshire legislature recently fully eliminated the civil statute of limitations in sexual assault cases, recognizing that survivors of sexual assault should not be bound by arbitrary timelines in their pursuit of healing and justice,” Grady Sexton said. “Statutes of limitations in these cases only benefit perpetrators, and the right to justice should never have an expiration date. We commend this courageous survivor for speaking her truth and sharing her story.”
