State of New York. Sex between 19 year old and 14 year old

Customer Question

State of New York. Sex between 19 year old and 14 year old in December 1989. The SOL changed in 2006. Can this be pursued criminally or civil?

Hello,

No it can't be. If the statute of limitations was still running when the law was changed, it could be pursued. But if the statute had completely run out before the law extended the SOL, the case is too old to be prosecuted.
