Hi everyone. I have searched online to try to find a website/ call number to get my question answered but have come up with nothing. Seeing as this is the most intelligent forum I frequent i felt i should ask here.
The story is. A very good friend of mine has recently confided in me. She has told me when she was about 9 (she is 21 now) she was sexually assaulted (raped) by a friend of her family (who was probably in his 30's at the time). it is a memory she has repressed and told no one about until now. I care about her very much and would like to help her heal the best I can. So my question is, after 12 years, is there anything legally she can do about it? or has the opportunity to press charges long past?
Any Help or advice would be much appreciated
Thank you very much
