Lawmakers Hear Emotional Plea For New Law On Sex Offenders
Illinois could become the next state to end the statute of limitation on some sex crimes. Lawmakers heard an emotional appeal from a man who says former House Speaker Denny Hastert sexually abused him. Hastert is serving time in prison for illegally spending money. Prosecutors couldn't charge him with a sex crime because it'd been so long. Legislators are considering abolishing a time limit on some crimes.
