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

You can sue the party who raped your son, since they are the responsible party. If the prison's policies or conduct caused the rape to occur or if the prison officials or employees were actually involved in the rape, you could file a civil rights lawsuit against them in the US District Court in the VI, since they do come under US federal laws, including civil rights laws.

Also, this is the type of complaint, since you are alleging public corruption, that you can file with the FBI as well.

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.

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.
