Hello and thank you for contacting us. This is Dwayne B. and I’m an expert here and looking forward to assisting you today. If at any point any of my answers aren’t clear please don’t hesitate to ask for clarification. Also, I can only answer the questions you specifically ask and based on the facts that you give so please be sure that you ask the questions you want to ask and provide all necessary facts. I don't have access to the codes or sentences from back then (11 years ago) but it would be some form of sexual assault and would be a felony. My guess is that back then it would have been a Felony Class C or D which could carry a punishment of up to 4 or 7 years in prison. However, that doesn't mean 1) you would actually get convicted or 2) you would actually get prison time. An allegation like this is very, very hard for the prosecution to prove since it occurred so long ago, there was only one instance, and the child didn't tell anyone until 11 years later. These kinds of cases are very easy to defend by taking the position that it didn't happen and the child either dreamt it or just made it up.

At this point DO NOT talk to anyone about this other than a lawyer. If the boy does report it then do not give a statement to anyone, answer questions, etc without a lawyer present. It will not help you, despite what they tell you, it can only hurt you.

By getting a lawyer involved it is very likely they can get this handled with as little trouble as possible and there is a very real chance they can prevent charges from even being filed. The sooner you hire them the better.

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.
