Re: “Magazine obtains police report over Josh Duggar sexual molestation investigation; he admits past 'mistakes,' resigns Family Council job

The law has been changed to eliminate the statute of limitations for many sex crimes, including sexual assault second if the victim is a minor at the time. However, this was not the law in effect at the time of the allegations. You cannot retroactively increase a statute of limitations and revive a time-barred prosecution. That would violate the ex post facto clause of the constitution. In 2002, the statute was three years, but did not begin until the child victim turned eighteen. There was an exception to the tolling of the limitations period if the crime was reported to law enforcement. The In Touch article states that the allegations were reported to law enforcement by 2003, so the statute of limitations appears to have run on anything that may have happened.

Re: “Rep. Bob Ballinger: let felons have a muzzleloader

You do not have to get a pardon to restore your right to vote. Once you have served your sentence, including any parole or probation, you provide proof to your local county clerk and you are restored to your right to vote.
