The passage of the Child Victims Act finally provides additional roads to justice for victims of child sexual abuse, especially victims who may only be able to reckon with their trauma later in life. We commend Governor Cuomo, Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins and the entire NYS Legislature for giving us new tools to prosecute those who prey on children.”

— Westchester County District Attorney Anthony A. Scarpino, Jr.
