Re: How Long Can I Wait to Report Child Abuse
Mom's ex boyfriend ... was he your legal guardian? Was he living with your family at the time?
If this is a misdemeanor (and it would be in my state) the SOL is generally two years. Other 3rd degree felonies (which this appears it could be under FL law) generally have a three year SOL.
Why would you concern yourself with this after three or more years?
A single incident of a punch to the face is not likely to raise great concerns with the local police even if for some reason it is actionable.
