Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hi,I'm Zoey and I'll be assisting you. I'm reviewing your question now. Please tell me what he is doing or has done with these photos and when. How old were you when he forced you to pose for these photos? How old was he? That is, were you at least 18?
I need you to answer all of the questions I asked, because if nothing has happened since the 1990's you're way outside of the statute of limitations to have any remedy in civil or criminal court.
So why the sudden concern in these now when you have had more than 20 years to have taken action?
If he is now threatening you with these photos or blackmailing you or has suddenly posted them on line, this would be an offense for which he can be prosecuted and/or restrained. But otherwise, it's too late to do anything now.
Is he asking for you to do anything, such as pay him money or have sex with him, in order to keep him from publishing the photos? Do you have copies of that correspondence or recordings on your answering machine?
You can go to the police and report this as a crime. Tell them you want him prosecuted and you want a criminal restraining order so that he cannot harm you. Alternatively, you could file for a protective order in civil court based on his course of harassment.
If he's harassing you/stalking you and making you concerned for your own safety, you can get a civil or a criminal restraining order.
Just checking in to see if you need more help or any clarification of my answer. If so, please reply here on this question thread.
