Last week: DONNA’S LAW: Donna’s Law became the law of the land in Florida. The new law eliminates the statute of limitations for sex crimes committed against minors (occurring after July 1). It’s named after Donna Hedrick, a courageous Orlando woman — raped as a teen 40 years ago — who I was honored to work with on behalf of survivors silenced by the state’s outrageous 72-hour reporting requirement. Although it should have happened long ago, at least going forward our state will finally close this shameful loophole that has enabled abusers to escape justice for their horrific sex crimes against children.
