Access to justice rests with Governor Abercrombie Victims statewide, including those from recent case against local dojo will not be able to seek justice if Senate and House bills are not allowed to become law **Please note Dropbox link to images and media materials at end of news release for use in reporting story** HONOLULU – A convicted pedophile's former students are among the many child sexual abuse survivors waiting to seek justice under pending legislation. If the Governor allows SB2687 to become law, the deadline for child abuse survivors to file claims will be extended to assure victims still coming forward have access to the courts, after a similar law expired on April 24, 2014. "Child sexual abuse survivors live in shame and fear for many years before they are able to confront their abuser, if ever," explained attorney Randall Rosenberg, Esq., of Rosenberg & McKay.

Fighting Financial Abuse

Fighting Financial Abuse

The frustrations of financial abuse for the elderly received help from the Governor today.

Gov. Neil Abercrombie signed Senate Bill 102 to amend a section in the Hawai`i Revised Statutes relating to the reporting of elderly financial abuse. The most significant change is for financial institutions to report possible abuse to state human services as well as county police. The original statute required reports only to human services. Immediately after receiving a report, police must begin a criminal investigation.

"It's gonna fill a gap that's really needed," Honolulu Police Department Lieutenant John McCarthy said. "We're seeing an explosion in elder financial fraud cases. It's really sad because these people lose real dollars. There's no one to replace it. There's nowhere to replace it. We have to get out to these complaints immediately to try and track the money and save or recover what's there."

"WE'RE SEEING IT EVERYWHERE"
