I had to serve 30 days. I have a very good job so the judge granted that I could do them one 24 hour period at a time. One of the guards pursued me and invited me to his 4th of July party where I got extremely intoxicated. He handcuffed me and had intercourse with me. The relationship continued the entire 30 weeks. On my very last night it was his shift that was supposed to release me. They did not. The next shift finally did and I never saw him again. He is now a school resource officer and I am concerned for the high school girls. How long is the statute of limitations in North Carolina on something like this? I also had a health advocate send a letter on my behalf to the sheriff the Lieutenant the jail nurse and the sheriff 's attorney about how she had watched my mental health decline since I had been doing this time. It was ignored completely. I still have the letter.
Are you saying that he raped you or are you saying that you had sex with him voluntarily outside of the jail walls? If it wasn't rape, and it didn't take place inside the jail, there isn't a crime here. If the sex took place within the jail, then there is a felony charge and no statute of limitation exists. Best of luck!
