Thank you for the additional information. I am glad you said that. The reason being, is that blackmail is a crime in Texas and is often classified as extortion
and a theft crime, in the State. I have provided the statute below for your review. With that being said, you have every legal right to contact the police and file criminal charges against her, for her actions. Since this is a crime against the State, if she is prosecuted, the State will represent your legal interest as the victim and obtain restitution
for you. This way, you do not have to incur the cost and put forth the effort, to try and recover on your own. If criminal charges were not filed, then you would have to file a civil cause of action against her, to recover. The emails which you have are evidence and can likely be used against her, to support your allegations. When you are asking about the statute of limitations
, for a civil suit, you are looking at 2 years. However, it is best to act at once.
