Hello and thank you for taking my question.JA: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.Customer: I was a victim of a violent crime that happened in FL. I now live in another state. The perpetrator is and has been incarcerated for nearly 3 years. The DA keeps calling me with stories that continually change about the case. I'll spare all the details and just say I want nothing but to move on with my life. I can care less about the scumb-bag who raped me -- I just want to move on with my life. What is my obligation to this case? I have a good life and a good job and I want to put that nightmare behind me not have to relive it again -- risking my job, relationship, etc.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: See the part about him being in jail for three years?JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I just want to know what my rights are?
