in 1970s and part of the 1980s I was molested by my brother. He threatened to kill my dad if I ever said a word so I never did. It really messed my life up real bad I am now in my late 30s and my life is really bad. HE now has a family of his own. I live in SC and he is in NY., is there any action legally I can take?

While I can't answer your question regarding legal action, I would like to welcome you to MaleSurvivor. You have taken a huge step here, and I hope you'll find the help and support here that I have.

You can check with the prosecutor's office or District Attorney in the state where the abuse took place to find out about the statutes of limitations there. Many states have expanded the time frame of when you can report and prosecute criminally or civilly for damages.
