Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking.
I am afraid that now your son is over 18, the legal action would be your son's action to take. If your son wants, there is a 20 year statute of limitations in OH and criminal
charges can still be pursued for sexual conduct with a minor. As far as a civil case, your son has 12 years from turning 18 to file suit against her for the abuse. After the 12 years, any right he had to sue would be barred forever. However, I am sorry to say that once he turned 18, it is his right to sue, no longer your right as the mother.
