Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost called on state lawmakers to lift the statute of limitations on rape. Five former Ohio attorneys general, both Democrats and Republicans, joined Yost in advocating for this change. 

Yost said there shouldn’t be a set time frame for when rape charges can be filed.

As of now, the statute of limitations for rape is 25 years. As Yost explained, rape is a deeply personal invasion, and victims may take many years to speak out.
