I think depending on which area of the crime is then you should extend the statue of limitations. If it's murder or sexual abuse (as in the article) then it should be extended. If your a kid and someone does something to you sexually, then kids usually don't tell someone. As they get older and they want to tell someone then they can. But wait! The statue of limitations would have been up and you couldn't. If it was extended then you could. That and murder should be extended to life because you would be able to tell what happened whenever.
