A state senator seeks to remove the limit of years to file charges
Ohio currently has a 20 year statute of limitations on rape, but two state lawmakers want to see that change. If approved, Senate Bill 83 would see Ohio join 28 other states where people can be charged with rape no matter how long ago the crime happened.
Senator Capri Cafaro cites the case of several men in Warren that have come forward with claims their high school baseball coach sexually abused them, but no charges can be filed.
The bill would not be retroactive, however it has the backing of the Ohio attorney general.
