I was sexually assaulted when I was 5 yrs old by an adult male. I am now 44 yrs old. I want to press charges against this individual. Is it too late?

    Lawyer agrees

    Answered . At this point it is too late. A report would have had to have been made within the first several years of your 18th birthday.
