NYC district attorneys urge state assembly to lift statue of limitations on sex trafficking

The city’s five district attorneys, along with advocacy organizations, are calling on the New York State Assembly to lift the statute of limitations for sex trafficking, a crime that primarily affects women and children throughout the state and around the globe.

The district attorneys and advocacy groups penned a letter to NYS Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie (D-Bronx) on Thursday calling on the legislature to eliminate the five-year statute of limitations for the crime.
