I am the victim of sexual assault in NJ. I went to the police the next day (Oct. 5) and filed a complaint and had a rape kit done. I call the prosecutors office every week and every week it's the same, they are investigating and waiting for evidence, at which point they will whether they will even prosecute. My question is, is this normal? How long does it take?

Question: can an inmate get in trouble for writing sexually

Question: can an inmate get in trouble for writing sexually explicit letters to a minor?Background on the question:I am a licensed psychologist in Oklahoma. Last Friday, the mother of my 17 year old client told me she discovered letters of a very intimate nature from a prisoner to my client. She said she could tell from the letters that the client has also written to him, so it is a two way street. The prisoner was convicted on 11-14-2003 of Rape - 1st Degree By Force And Fear. Received 20 year sentence. Started 1-16-2004, release date of 10-21-2023. Currently in Jess Dunn Correctional Center, Taft, Oklahoma.The mother said the letters were not in an envelope, so she has no idea how my client is getting the letters.She also said that this is the second time she has caught my client writing to this same inmate. I was not made aware of this fact until last Friday.Could he get in trouble for writing letters to her? I have not seen these letters, so I don't know how sexual they are, but judging by the gingerly worded message I received from the mother, I anticipate they are very sexual. I also would be surprised if she had not sent explicit photos of herself to him. My sincere and honest hope is that he could get in trouble, as this might actually get her to stop - at least long enough for me to intervene psychologically. But I need to know before I say anything. This young is extremely bright, and she likely has thought about this angle already.Thank you in advance for your assistance.

One of my nephew, he is 22 yrs old. He has a relationship

One of my nephew, he is 22 yrs old. He has a relationship with a girl who told our entire family that she was 21 yrs old, and both of her parents are deceased. Just about few months ago, our family finds out that his girl friend is a run away teenager and she is actually 17 yrs old from her birth mother. His girl friend is a drug user and an alcoholic. She needs money for buying drugs, so she has been blackmail him "If you don't give me money, I will turn you in as sex offender who has sex with minor." My nephew would like to turn himself in to the court, so my questions are:1. How does he turn himself in?2. What kinds of penalties will he face?The family believes that he does the right things by turning himself in , and admits that it was a mistake for believing her. He did not know of her lie. The family cares about her and urges her to go rehab to get clean, but she only wants money to buy drugs and alcohol. It is better to face the judge than dealing with her black mail. Please help.

Then I was not being treated. we ran away crossing state lines when my parents said they were never going to let him speak to me again and we're going to throw him in prison forsatutory rape. Now I am 17 almost 18 in 3 months and he just. Turned 21. Is there anything I can do legally to have these charges dropped? My parents are pushing it and keep saying its up to the state, but they just want him to be punished.

Does a county sheriff have the authority to hold a person

Does a county sheriff have the authority to hold a person who has been arrested and charged with child cruelty? My step daughter spanked her 4 year old and it was video taped. I have not seen the video, but I was told the spanking was excessive. Bond was posted and paid on Monday, September 12 and I have been told every day this week the sheriff has not slowed down long enough to view the video. Therefore, the sheriff is continuing to hold her in the county jail. My step daughter is a first time offender and has never been in trouble, not even a speeding ticket. Can you please give me some advice. Oh, and I have been told by the public defender's office the sheriff is the one who decides on a court date. Is this true?
