Good Evening,

I will tryto best answer your question.

As result of the church sex abuse scandal cases many of the statute of limitationseparation on sex crimes have been extended to run after the individual is 18 years of age. I would advise contacting the district attorney's office for the county in which the incident occurred and allowing them to complete their investigation and make a determination as to whether or not it is a prosecutable offense.
