Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

Unfortunately, these cases are so difficult to prove. You would need some type of witness or evidence to the allegations. It has to be more than just you saying it happened I am sorry to say. You have only 3 years from when you turn 18 in MA to file a civil suit.

If you do not have the evidence or witnesses or an admission from one of the perpetrators or someone who knew about it at the time, then you can report it to the police. If the police cannot uncover any evidence or witnesses though, I am sorry to say you may never get the closure you are seeking to this matter.

Please do not forget to leave positive feedback by clicking on the 5 stars at the top of your page, as the experts are not employees of the site and get no credit for spending time with customers unless they leave positive feedback. Thank you.
