Yesterday, I posted about how the statute of limitations applied to any Maryland case that might be based on Christine Ford’s allegations against Brett Kavanaugh. I’ve had an inquiry about why the State of Maryland would treat one Brett K. differently from another Brett K. Specifically, the question has been raised about why the statute of limitations would apply to Ford’s allegations against Brett Kavanaugh but did not apply to the allegations of third-degree sexual offense against Brett Kimberlin in 2013.
The answer is timing. The Baltimore Sun piece I referenced in my earlier post notes that the law changed in 1996, and it seems that at least some of the acts alleged against The
Dread Deadbeat Pedo Kimberlin occurred when the new law was in effect.
