I was assaulted in 1983 at MTSU. on, beaten and raped in

Customer Question

I was assaulted in 1983 at MTSU. Pissed on, beaten and raped in front of my classmates and dorm mates, I was too embarrassed to report it, so I left that college and have been haunted by the memories. Is it too late to get justice?

Unfortunately it is too late. Even though the legislature recently made certain classes of rape to be without a limitation period, even in those cases the victim must have filed a police report within 3 years of the occurrence. Also, the limitations period for assault and battery in civil court is 2 years. Sorry to tell you this.
