New law lets Redding man file sexual abuse lawsuit 20 years later

Using a state law that went into effect this year, a Redding man has filed a lawsuit some 20 years after he was allegedly sexually abused by a teacher’s aide at a Redding continuation high school.

The man, now 37-years-old, claims in his lawsuit that he was sexually abused numerous times in 2000-01 by a teacher’s aide while he was a student at Pioneer High School.

The man is one of hundreds of people statewide who are taking advantage of a change in California law that allows victims of sexual assault or abuse to file court claims against their perpetrators up to 22 years after the incident.

Louanne Masry, the Los Angeles attorney who filed the case, said a large number of people have contacted her office since the law went into effect Jan. 1 of this year.
