In North Carolina, as well as in 15 other states, felonies have no statute of limitations, meaning that someone can report a rape that he or she says occurred decades ago. By and large, this lack of restriction is friendly to victims and can be a good thing.
People in all sorts of professions, including teaching, get accused of sexual abuse. In fact, teachers, because they are alone with students and exert a position of authority over them, are in an especially risky position.

With a few proactive strategies, however, you can decrease your chances of doing anything that appears improper.
