There is an ongoing open case/investigation with the local

There is an ongoing open case/investigation with the local sheriff's department in California for going on 5 months now for a possible statutory rape. It was brought to their attention because the alleged perpetrator (30 at the time, now 31) and victim were discovered together by university police in a vehicle at the alleged victims college. She was 18 at the time and is now 19. University police sent in a report to the sheriff's department to have them investigate further. The sheriff's department conducted one interview with the alleged perpetrator about a month after they started their investigation but there has been no developments since. The two are still romantically involved and intent to be moving forward.As previously stated the alleged victim and her parents have no interest in pursuing charges. The alleged perpetrator's wife (soon to be ex wife) however does want there to be charges. She wants the husband to get into trouble and claims she will make a report with the sheriff's office but has yet to do so. She is using this situation as leverage to try and get full child custody, child support, etc.What power does the wife have in this situation in regards ***** ***** statutory rape investigation? Can she be enough to get charges brought? If there is no other evidence can her word be enough to potentially lead to conviction since it seems there would be no way to conclusively prove penetration?Since the investigation has no concrete date to potentially charge from would they by default push the beginning of the statute of limitations to the 21st birthday of the alleged victim?If the alleged perpetrator and victim move in with each other does this change anything? Marriage of the two change anything? If they move to a neighboring state would that affect the clock on the statute of limitations?Anything else that one should consider in this scenario?

I have been trying to keep my personal and work related

I have been trying to keep my personal and work related information private for the past several years due to a past stalking incident that had resulted in a serious bodily injury. Whenever my personal information would be listed somewhere on the web, the site owner agreed to remove it, once contacted and appraised of my situation. This has worked in the past. Recently, however, my employer has discovered my desire for privacy and seems to keep trying to unnecessarily publish my info under the pretext of ‘recognition' ,'reports' etc (in my opinion, a retaliatory act for filing a complaint against the employer,)My question is, is there a court order that I could get that would prohibit them from publishing my information? Every time something like this is published, I break out in cold sweat and I'm paralyzed with fear and anxiety that my stalker would find me again. I have already put in several years of work with this company and don't want to have to quit my job and start over unless that is the only alternative.If going the court route is an option, please include instructions on how to do this and if there is a way to expedite the process. Once the information is accessed by my stalker, there's no point in having it removed.
