Support No Statute of Limitations for Criminal 1st Degree Sexual Conduct in Michigan

Currently in the state of Michigan there is NOT a statute of limitations on 1st degree criminal sexual conduct UNLESS the abuse or attack took place before the year 2000. If the law recognizes NO limits then that's exactly what it should mean.
So at this time if a sexual abuse/attack took place before the year 2000 the offenders can not be prosecuted even with a written confession.
A survivor should be able to choose when to come forward during the healing process if they choose to prosecute in a year or 30 years from now.
We the voters of Michigan request that the law in Michigan under Mich. Comp. Laws §767.24 includes a provision that there be no statutory limitation before the year 2000 for prosecution of 1st degree criminal sexual conduct.
