New Law Aims to Increase Reporting of Sex Abuse

BUFFALO, N.Y. -- State Senator George Maziarz is introducing legislation in the New York State Senate that would require college coaches and administrators become mandatory reporters of child abuse.

Maziarz said it is designed to close a loophole in the state's child abuse reporting requirements.  Under the proposed law, all college coaches, athletic directors, professors, graduate assistants and administrators would become mandatory reporters.

The legislation will be known as the College Coaches and Professionals Reporting Act.  It is quickly gaining bipartisan support in the Legislature.  State Assemblyman John Ceretto (R-I Lewiston) has signed on to sponsor the legislation in the Assembly.

Anyone found guilty of not reporting an abuse incident would face a Class A misdemeanor conviction and up to one year in jail.
