I am truly sorry to be the one to bear bad news.
It is too late to bring a civil lawsuit. The KY statute of limitations for a civil lawsuit is 5 years or this matter. That clock starts to tick when the victim turns 18.
So in this case, when the child turned 23, the statute of limitations expired.
It is too late to sue.
Now...is it possible they could convince the police to prosecute? Even though it is too late to sue, in theory the police could bring criminal charges. So they could contact the police and ask them to prosecute.
But, frankly, the likelihood of the police taking the case after they waited this many years to prosecute is very small;
This is the part of my job I don't like...when the law is not in favor of my customer. I wish I could tell you that they can still sue, but I can only provide you information based on the law so that you can act on the best available information to you...I wish I had better news, but can only hope you recognize and understand my predicament and don't shoot the messenger. I'm sorry!
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.
