  1. Best answer

    Different levels of crimes carry different statute of limitations. You can file a complaint with the Suffolk County police department. If it is beyond the SOL then the state will not prosecute it. In the non-criminal arena, there is also the state bar ethics committee that handles complaints against lawyers and civil actions that may be available to you depending on what happened.


  2. It depends in what capacity and how he harassed you. Most people do not understand harassment law, nor are they expected to. There are different statutes depending on what is alleged.

  4. Depending on the nature of the harassment, this is likely a civil matter and not a criminal matter. Speak with a civil lawyer.
