Ohio’s Attorney General is weighing in on the recent child molestation confession of former Horizon Telcom CEO and Boy Scout leader, Bill McKell.
In a statement, Dave Yost said the allegations, and apparent confession, of sexual abuse surrounding McKell deserve "swift and severe punishment".
Yost went on to say that due to the statute of limitations, “swift and severe punishment’ may not happen under current law. Yost said that’s what he and several former attorneys general have called for the statute of limitations for rape to be eliminated.
According to McKell’s confession, posted to his social media this past weekend, his crimes were committed in the years preceding the mid-90s, which would place them outside of Ohio’s 20 year statute of limitations for rape.
