Talk is cheap. A report filed two years after the fact is rarely taken seriously.
SAN DIEGO CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEY--20 years experience
After two years, the DA may or may not pursue charges. However, if you keep admitting that you did it, that could be the deciding factor.
STOP posting about this on the internet. STOP talking to her about the incident. Don't talk with ANYONE about it except a lawyer. If contacted by law enforcement, politely say you choose to remain silent and you want a lawyer, then SHUT UP.
This is NOT legal advice. It is a general discussion of legal principles by a California lawyer, and does not create an attorney/client relationship. You should always consult PRIVATELY with an attorney. Free consultation only applies to potential clients with a criminal case within 100 miles of Chico, California.
