There is no statute of limitations on felony matters of this kind in North Carolina. That means that even though this happened a long time ago, you can still go to the police or the prosecutor's office, report the crime and ask that your grandmother's boyfriend be prosecuted.
Unfortunately, you are outside of the statutory time frame for a civil suit. You'd have 3 years from the time you turned 18 to sue for this in your state.
No. The time to sue is past.
You may be able to get some form of restitution from the criminal justice system. You'd have to take that up with the prosecutor when you discuss the case.
