SPRINGFIELD, Il. (KMOX) – Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan is calling on state lawmakers to pass legislation removing statutes of limitations for child sex abuse crimes.
Her push for this legislatures to pass is in response to the case against former U.S. House Speaker Dennis Hastert.
Madigan’s office says state lawmakers have four similar proposals pending on the matter.
About 30 states have no statues of limitations on child sexual abuse cases.
