  1. You probably can press charges, but the real question is, What do you want to accomplish? If you just want to protect your mail, you can have it sent to a different address. If you're out to "get" someone, you might be able to get have them arrested and charged, but that's certainly going to cause more family problems. Think about the consequences of your actions.
