Unfortunately, no. The statute of limitations on a statutory rape offense is only three years. It is much too late to press charges at this time. Similarly, the civil statute of limitations, 4 years, has also run its course.

I'm sorry not to be able to tell you what you'd like most to hear, but you no longer have legal remedies for the old offense.

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!!

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.
