Georgia
Lawyer: Law Educator, Esq., Attorney replied 3 years ago
Thank you for your reply.
I am sorry to say that this is serious in GA, because the statute of limitations has not yet expired on this incident. The statute of limitations in GA for this is 7 years AFTER the victim reaches 16 years old, which means if she was 4 or 5 at the time, she is 13 or 14 now and you could still be prosecuted. Your therapist is bound by client confidentiality, but if the niece gets older and reports this, it is a felony and a serious felony at that as it is punishable by a minimum of 1 year and maximum 20 years in prison and because of the age of the victim, the GA courts generally treat that more severe and you are likely looking at 10-20 years in prison if she files a complaint about this within the statute of limitations.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

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.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
