Project Description

My project covers the local and state laws with regard to child abuse as well as the statute of limitation.  Facts and arguments are presented to support the abolishing of the statute of limitation laws.


Content: The top 3 things I learned from this showcase were:

I learned that:

  • A victim of child abuse can no longer prosecute 6 years after the abuse.
  • Most states have lifted the statute of limitations in dealing with child abuse.
  • Cases of child abuse are more frequent than before I did this project.

Culture: This project relates or connects to my family, background, peers, community or my own personal interests in these ways:

This project is very close to my me since I am a victim of child abuse and sexual assault.  It upsets me that there are other victims out there that are unable to prosecute because they were too young at the time of the assault.

Metacognition: In reflection, one thing that I would have done differently during my journey with this showcase is:

If I had more time on this project I would have taken steps to make this information more public and work to get the laws changed.

Social/Emotional: One thing I am most proud of by completing this showcase is:

I received more support than I believed I would get through feedback from this presentation. I also received some good advice about contacting our local and state government officials as well as the media.
