How long are you talking? I believe there might be a statue of limitations for things like that and also there is the matter of lack of evidence other than just say so. I suspect it would be a long, difficult battle.

Most people that commit this type of crime do not stop. If it happened a long time ago to someone you know you can believe the offender is still doing this to someone else. I would contact a lawyer. Or call the sheriffs dept and talk to someone there. If you don't tell then he/she will continue to hurt others. They never stop unless they are stopped.

report it just in case there are more victims than you thought or if it happens again to someone else.....it will be on file,with no evidence you will need more to come foward
