Loving this satire on women in the workplace

 

The good and the bad feature sex trafficking stings and overdue assault charges. Kim and Kirsta stumble over the Statute of Limitations in the R. Kelly case, but promised clarification.  Fortunately, RAINN has a great article on Statute of Limitations in each state.  The RAINN article doesn’t specifically discuss childhood sex assault but it turns out that the Illinois law (where R. Kelly was finally charged) is pretty complex.  Victims have to report within 5 years of “discovering” that it was abuse.  This is an interesting nuance because a child might not recognize what the person in a position of trust is doing to them is actually abuse until they’re much older.  Further, the statute of limitations “tolls” (Pauses; the passage of time doesn’t count.) if the abuser continues to abuse or threaten the victim, even after their an adult.  Interesting to say the least.
