PA A.G. Beemer Believes Child Sex-Abuse Bill was Constitutional

On behalf of Soloff & Zervanos, P.C. Posted in Sexual Abuse on Friday, September 23, 2016.

This amendment was made after testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee by then-Solicitor General Bruce Castor, an appointee of former Attorney General Kathleen Kane, that the retroactive portion of the bill was unconstitutional. Current Attorney General Bruce Beemer disagrees, as do both candidates running for Beemer’s post in the upcoming election. Read more.
