A local sex crimes advocate said that she believes Senate Bill 819, dealing with children sex crimes among other things, is important because it gives victims time to become comfortable with coming forward.

"This is going to be pretty revolutionary for them to know that they do have this option even if it has been 20, 30, 40 years," said Kendra Eads, an advocate with SEMO NASV. "We know that this is a very difficult thing to talk about and that the fact that thy can still come forward and have justice is huge."
