Since you were not under 18 you only had 3 years to press criminal charges.

I was in grad school (kindergarden) How was I too press charges then

 

Lawyer: legaleagle, Lawyer (JD) replied 8 years ago
sorry I thought you said grad school, ie after college, you left off the "e" in grade school. Then you had 10 years from the date you turned 18.

10 yrs I would have been 16 or 17 and try telling my parents of this was no good. I was punished for saying such things and punished. Also punished by my brother over and over again I had no where to turn for help

Lawyer: legaleagle, Lawyer (JD) replied 8 years ago
No, 10 years from the date you turned 18, so by time you turned 28 you had to have filed charges.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
