Both civil and criminal statutes of limitations are based on when the child/victim reaches the age of 18 (or is relieved from some other disability which would further toll (extend) the statute).

-The Criminal prosecution of child molest must occur within 10 years of the child reaching the age of 18

-A civil cause of action for child molest must be brought against the defendant within 6 years of the child reaching the age of 18.
