She was criticized for having waited too long before filing a complaint.
“The abuse began at the age of four, which means that it was at five that she had to make the claims. If she is underage, she can always say that she did not understand, but as soon as she began to realize that she had been abused, the one year period started to run. So, in his case, he was criticized, fifteen years ago, for not having claimed incest in the year which followed, which is completely ridiculous, ”underlines his lawyer, Me Marc Bellemare.
