My question involves civil rights in the State of: California
I was raped by a los angeles county official, and I reported it to the police in my town which is not in los angeles county. The police investigated it and even though there was alot of evidence the police dropped the case and did not press charges. I contacted a lawyer who said he would take my case. They filed the claim for damages and it was denied 5 months ago. They keep telling me that they are going to file the lawsuit soon. But I know my statute of limitations is running out and I feel like my lawyer is just holding me off until it runs out and then I can't do anything. Can a lawyer do that? Why is it that the police protect the police and so do county officials. This cop had no right to rape me in my home in uniform with a gun while my kids were in my home. I feel so alone. I know that these things happen alot more than people know. Ladies if you have ever been sexually assaulted stand up for yourself whether it is a regular person or a person with authority like a police officer. If we don't stand up men like the one who raped me are going to get away with it. The judicial system is so screwed up. I want justice. I have nightmares, insomnia, fears about being alone, and I have lost my job among many other things yet nobody cares. IT IS A MAD SAD WORLD WE LIVE IN
Does anyone have any advice?
