You need to address this issue with a criminal attorney.
The information above is general in nature and in no manner meant to be legal advice. To obtain legal advice you must retain an attorney. If you found the information helpful in a general manner, please indicate above that you found it helpful.
Go and speak with a criminal defense attorney in your area. You do not provide much information here - such as how long ago it happened - was the case ever prosecuted - what happened etc.
The decision to do anything with the case rests with the prosecutor's office.
The State through law enforcement is who brings charged against people who commit crimes, so no attorney can do that for you. However, someone in the criminal defense field could point you in the direction of a good private investigator. He or she can then work on gathering enough evidence to then present to a District Attorney or Police Detective with the goal of having them arrest the people involved. You could also hire a civil attorney to sue the people involved for damages, but it will not actually result in their arrest.
The above information is general in nature. In order to obtain more specific legal advice upon which to base your important decisions, you should consult with an attorney in person and retain one of your choosing. Robert M. Gardner, Jr. Hicks, Massey & Gardner, LLP
Talk with Victim/Witness Assistance in the DA's office that is handling the case. If the police never forwarded the case to the DA, talk to a criminal defense attorney who can approach the police department on your behalf.
