Childhood sexual abuse imposes an indirect cost to every American in the form of higher insurance premiums generated by more claims. In addition, many survivors suffer from a loss of productivity in their careers that also depletes the national economy. Thus, Congress rightly should study and consider how it can reduce the incidence of childhood sexual abuse, which is generating this heavy economic burden. 8 The federal government also needs to find ways to encourage states to eliminate their SOLs.
The Child Victim’s Act of Delaware, which went into effect on July 10, 2007, abolished the civil SOL for childhood sexual abuse. Alaska and Maine abolished their SOLs in 2001 and 1999, respectively. ) There is a second-best option in the civil context. Though not as comprehensive, it also would be a large step in the right direction for survivors. ) Instead of clear-cut abolition, as in Delaware, a state could institute a “discovery rule,” as it is called. Under this system, which I first mentioned in Chapter 2, a survivor 39 Justice Denied might have a limit on when he or she could go to court, but that limit would be tied to the date the survivor fully realized that his or her personal problems were caused by the sexual abuse as a child.
There should be no arbitrary and rigid time frame that permits the 29 Justice Denied multimillionaire parent or wealthy institution that fostered the sex abuse to believe their assets are wholly protected from the victims they destroyed. Certainly, no perpetrator or institution that aided that perpetrator should be secure in the knowledge that jail time and fines are beyond the survivor’s reach. In short, empower the survivor with open access to the justice system and, at the same time, introduce tension and fear into the lives of those who caused and permitted the abuse to happen.
