    Answered . You don't indicate how old you are now, but more than likely you can still press charges since you were a minor. Since you were too young to consent to sex, what he did to you was an assault and you could hire an attorney to sue him and his friend. You need to take action because if that video is placed on the internet, you'll never be able to reclaim it. I do foresee a problem, though, if you're still a minor, an adult family member will need to retain the attorney, now you. You could still contact the district attorney even if you are minor. You need to stop this predator.
