New Protections for Child Sex Abuse Victims

Sex abuse and harassment are much in the news of late.  Recently, California’s Governor signed into law a bill to help sexually abused children who decide to hold perpetrators accountable.  In the past, child victims who sued for justice were subjected to overly long psychological examinations by defense teams.  As a result of Senator Beall’s SB 755 legislation, the new law limits the time that sexually abused children under the age of 15 must submit to such traumatic examinations.
