This might make your blood boil, but I thought it might be of some use to anyone contemplating legal action against their abusers.

I haven't looked at the site in any depth, and know nothing of US law, so please take it as it comes.

Or, if you file police report in Russia, it just 'disappears'.

In a lot of cases, and specifically in mine, the statute of limitations is expired for prosecution on the specific crimes I endured.

It's possible sometimes to pursue civil legislation, but I don't think there's anything in that for me. I don't want money, and probably couldn't get any if I won a case. I don't want to "get even." I did what I wanted when I reported earlier this year. I dragged him out of his hiding hole. He doesn't have the luxury of a clean record when he tries to position himself to attack someone else.

There may be more. I need to return a call to the police later this week to get the update. It was a big step for me to make the report. I know I did what I needed to do. Partly because of the friendships and inspiration I have found here, I have done a lot of things I needed to do in the past 18 months.

Sorry to go off hijacking the thread this way. Online time isn't as available as it once was, and I had a lot to say.

Thanks,

Joe
