Child Victim’s Act of Delaware

A number of individuals who were sexually abused as children came forward and asked Delaware's court system to pass a bill -- Child Victim's Act -- to help them seek justice, and to keep children safe today by exposing sexual predators and private and public institutions that have enabled abuse through gross negligence.
