SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) — Time is ticking for any victims of child sex abuse by Catholic clergy members in California, as there’s one month left to file a lawsuit under a recently-signed state law.

Born and raised in the Bay Area, McNevin says he’s one of the hundreds of people in Northern California who was sexually abused by a Catholic priest.

“I think the abuse, it has a permanent impact on whoever is a victim. Your life changes the moment it happens,” McNevin said.

But others, like McNevin, who may wish to come forward, are running out of time.

That’s because a law passed by the California legislature back in 2019 is set to expire at the end of this year.
