If the person is prosecuted, the court can order restitution as part of any sentence
that is imposed, but if he goes to prison will probably not have any means of making restitution.
You would also be entitled to civil damages, which will be easier to prove if he is convicted, but once again more difficult to collect.
If he has no assets from which to pay restitution or damages, you will have a difficult time collecting anything from him. Based on the facts you provided, it does not seem likely that anyone else would be liable, either.
However, California does have a special program of compensation for victims of certain kinds of crimes, including sexual assaults. It is called the Victim Compensation Program and is administered by the Victim Compensation and Government Claims Board. Instructions on how to apply and application forms are available online at this website:
There are restrictions on what and how much can be paid. The guidelines are at:
You do not need an attorney to apply for compensation under this program; the board will assist you in filing and processing a claim.
You will also not need an attorney to collect restitution if he is convicted in a criminal
proceeding; the probation department will help you with that. However, if you want to sue him civilly, you will need an attorney for that.
If you have not already done so, I also suggest that you seek counselling (the cost of which can be covered by the Victim Compensation Program).
