I am sorry, but what is your question for us, since all of this happened so long ago that it is likely not going to be able to be prosecuted, even if there is no statute of limitations for criminal prosecution on rape?

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.
