In this era of politicians and Soros funded prosecutors going softer and softer on crime and criminals, it's refreshing when lawmakers  attempt to put some bite back into legislation.  The Louisiana Senate has a law to be heard that will eliminate the 30-year statute of limitations where one can be prosecuted for child molestation.



Lafitte Representative Tim Kerner hopes the bill, which passed unanimously in the House, will be heard in the Senate before the session ends. 

“The monsters that are out there who’ve done those kinds of things, hopefully, it will all come to light, and they’ll pay for their sins, and it will give some closure to some victims out there,” said Kerner. 

Kerner said since he authored the bill, he’s heard from too many victims, and he believes they deserve to have their case heard no matter how long ago it happened. 

“I’ve heard so many horror stories since I started this bill, it makes me sick. I just want zero-tolerance for that kind of thing in the State of Louisiana,” said Kerner. 

Unfortunately, far too often, Kerner said, children are victimized by someone they know and trust, and they repress the memories of what happened to survive. And in many cases, it’s someone in their own family. 

“You know you’re living with it, and it’s this terrible thing, and then something happens where those situations change then they want to come forward and say it, and they ought to have that opportunity,” said Kerner. 

Kerner encourages residents who support the bill to call their state Senator and ask them to pass House Bill 453.
