House Bill 3284


House Bill 3284 eliminates the criminal statute of limitations for the following sex crimes against minors. It only applies to offenders that over 18 at the time of the crime. Currently the statute expires when the victim turns 30. This change allows a District Attorney to bring charges at any time the crime is reported and they feel there is adequate evidence for a trial.

Sex Abuse in the First Degree, Sodomy in the First Degree, Child Sex Abuse in the First Degree, Unlawful Sexual Penetration in the First Degree, and Incest.

This bill is being presented by the Oregon House Judiciary Committee at the request of OAASIS. Please support this needed change by contacting first a member of the House Judiciary Committee and then your own Representative that can be found at http://www.leg.state.or.us/findlegsltr/.  Tell them how important this is to you and ask them to support the bill. It is time to open the doors of justice to victims of Child Sex Abuse and hold offenders accountable.  BE POLITE, please! 

And then please cut and paste this email and share it widely. We have a good shot here if everybody pitches in. Next comes a hearing later in April.
