My name is***** have over 16 years experience in the law. Should you like to chat on the phone I am happy to for a nominal cost. Let me know at any time during our question and answer session if you are interested I am happy to give you more details.That depends...can you tell me
1. What state did this happen in?
2. How long ago did he assault you?
You can still request the police investigate/prosecute.
That is, the statute of limitations in TX to prosecute an assault charge is 2 years. Since this happened less than 2 years ago, the state can still prosecute.
Now...you have to convince the police to take the case. Police have discretion. That means they are not required to investigate any particular case. So they may decline to take the case because it happened so long ago.
But you can make the request.
Please let me know if you have more questions. I am happy to help if I can. Otherwise, please rate the answer so I may get credit for my work.
