How long ago was this? What happened in court? In what US state did this occur?
It's not clear whether this is the state's fault, as there was some court proceeding and I can't see what he was charged with, what he was convicted of, how the conviction happened or how the sentence was determined. That the molestation continued was also arguably something for which your mother may have been more responsible than the state.
I never have to concern myself with those factors, however, because, unfortunately, the statute of limitations on a personal injury suit in Mississippi is three years from the injury, and I am assuming that it has been well more than three years since the molestation last occurred. That means you are time-barred and it is much too late now to sue anybody for what happened to you.
I am very sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
