Biden unveils child pornography legislation for Delaware
"Attorney General Joseph “Beau” Biden III unveiled new legislation Wednesday, March 10, that would extend financial liability to producers and possessors of child pornography.
Senate Bill 158 would entitle victims of child pornography to damages of at least $150,000. Under the bill, victims would be presumed injured, sparing them and their families the burden of proving specific damages in court. The bill also extends the statute of limitations to file a lawsuit from two to three years and permits the court to award attorney’s fees and costs to the victim.......
The legislation, sponsored by Sen. Karen Peterson, D-Stanton, and Sen. Bethany Hall-Long, D-Newark South, is the second bill introduced this year regarding child sexual abuse.
The first, introduced by Rep. Pete Schwartzkopf, D-Rehoboth Beach, Rep. John Atkins, D-Millsboro and Rep. Helene Keeley, D-Wilmington South, allows victims of sexual abuse by their medical provider to file suit at any time.
Both bills come in light of the Dr. Earl Bradley sexual abuse case in Lewes. Bradley, who is awaiting arraignment, has been charged with 471 counts of rape and child exploitation involving 103 victims.
