My friend was raped numerous times by her former roommate who also admitted to sexually assaulting her 3 year old daughter, and she was too afraid to report it because she had nowhere else to go at the time. She eventually filed charges and is now staying at a women's shelter. However, the police apparently dropped the charges because the DA said that there is not enough proof that he was her abuser, even though she was assured that the state of Texas would also press charges in addition to hers. The abuser has continued to stalk her and send life threatening text messages to her and me on almost a daily basis. She has filed for a protection order several times too, but has been given the runaround every single time and still no order has come through.
What else can i do???
Realistically, the only thing that she can do is to move. The district attorney has decided that they don't have a good enough case, regardless of what the police (or even a prosecutor) told her. She should change her telephone number and only provide it to people who have NO contact with him and she should get as far away from him as possible.
Unfortunately, we cannot make a district attorney prosecute someone. But, we can take steps to protect ourselves.
Everything that can be done has been done. Perhaps take attorney Johnston advice and move
How can he send threatening messages if you both have blocked him? That is step one. Step two is document every call, sighting, other contact including writing down the details and take a photo if possible. Third, stay away from where he goes. If the DA refuses charges, then the only other thing she can do is hire a lawyer to sue him.
