    with all the charges being thrown at the priesthood, do you thikn there should be a statute of limitations on any type of child molestation?
    i personally think there doesnt need to be one. jsut because, in some cases, alot of time has passed doesnt mean that they still arent who/ what they were. and it doesnt meanthey arent doing the same thing still.

    No statute of limitations for child molestation should be in place.

    I worked for a Mental Health clinic and we often had cases of child abuse. It takes some of those kids years to be able, through therapy, to deal with the abuse and even longer to face their accuser.

    Should a statute of limitations be in place, those kids would either 1) screw themselves up trying to rush through the therapy cycle to prosecute the abuser and/or 2) abusers would be roaming free, unprosecuted, looking for their next victim.

    What I would chance is the punishment for the abuser. I think the death penalty should apply to child abusers. I think if the victim is under the age of 2, there should be no other option except the death penalty.

    And in that case, they should be hung by their balls.

    Child molestation should be a capital offense w/o a statute of limitations (but that's just the fascist in me talking).

    I think we should get that Aussie grandmother to carry out all the sentences for punishment for child molestation! Nothing like a shot in the nuts with a .12 gauge!

    I definitely don't think a statute of limitations should apply to ANY crime, much less child molestation.
