Sister Cathy, Part 42.1 : Hidden Predator Act 2020 [Part 1]
In Annapolis Maryland on Feb 20th survivors Teresa Lancaster and Jean Wehner joined other survivors and experts to speak at a hearing to state committee members on why the Hidden Predator Act of 2020 should be passed. This act would eliminate the statute of limitations for abuse victims, allowing them to have their day in civil court to expose their abuser. Last year this act passed the Maryland House, but failed in the Senate. This year, they continue their fight for survivors in Maryland. The full hearing is around two hours long, so we will release them one after another. During this first part the panel, consisting of survivors and experts, will speak to the committee members. There are 3 panels in this first episode, with Jean speaking in the last one. After each panel speaks, the committee members ask questions prior to the next panel. Next week’s episode will include Teresa Lancaster.
