Briefing held for sex crimes/cyberbullying bills
by Nick Delgado
Guam - Several officials with the Department of Public Health joined in a roundtable briefing for several pieces of legislation that deal with the statute of limitations for sex crimes involving minors, and cyberbullying and sexting. All three measures were introduced by Vice Speaker B.J. Cruz. Bill 33 and 34 would allow more time for the prosecution of cases where victims who were sexually abused as children can continue to seek justice as adults.
Chief Prosecutor Phil Tydingco also participated in the discussion expressing his support for the measures. A public hearing on the bills will be held next week.
