Colorado Child Sexual Abuse Accountability Act
Child sexual abuse victims in Colorado have a new opportunity for healing and accountability beginning January 1, 2022, when Colorado’s three-year “window” provision of the Child Sexual Abuse Accountability Act (CSAAA) for survivors to take legal action takes effect. The three-year window gives survivors abused on or after January 1, 1960, until December 31, 2024, to take legal action for the abuse they suffered as children.
In addition to opening the three-year window to allow survivors to bring claims where the statute of limitations has previously expired, Colorado also removed the statute of limitations for sexual assault claims moving forward.
Colorado Attorney General’s Report
On October 22, 2019, the office of Colorado Attorney General Phil Weiser released the special master’s report Roman Catholic Clergy Sexual Abuse of Children in Colorado from 1950 to 2019. It contains “substantiated incidents of the sexual abuse of children by ordained Roman Catholic priests in Colorado over the last 70 years” and details how all three Colorado Dioceses – the Archdiocese of Denver, the Diocese of Pueblo, and the Diocese of Colorado Springs – protected themselves and their priests instead of the children entrusted to their care. Learn more about this landmark investigation for the Child Protection Movement and the truth it uncovered.
If you were sexually abused by a priest, counselor, teacher, coach, or other trusted adult in Colorado, you have rights. Contact us confidentially.
