My question involves criminal law for the state of: California
This incident took place in August of 2009. My father and I were working together at a bowling tournament and only one shower in the house worked, the one in the master bathroom. Its a glass paneled shower and theres a big mirror in front of it with the sinks and everything.
So I was taking a shower in the morning to get ready, and i saw something move out of the corner of my eye, so I looked up and noticed that my father was standing in his underwear outside the shower pointing a camera at me. For a minute I froze in fear and disbelief, but then I just stopped the shower and put a towel around me and left the room. I got dressed in my room and then had to use a sink downstairs to get the shampoo out of my hair.
For about a week after that, I would wake up in the middle of the night and see him standing over my bed in his underwear. When he saw I was awake, he would pet my dog, which usually sleeps with me, and then leave the room.
This event has caused me to have anxiety attacks on a regualr basis. I usually have one once or twice every two weeks. More often than that, I have nightmares that I'm not alone in my room and I'm too afraid to shower in my own home anymore. Usually I shower at a friend's house when I feel like I smell terrible, but being in a shower at all usually gives me a panic attack and I always rush through everything I have to do to try and make sure no one has time to take a picture of me.
I just turned 18 and I don't have a job so I'm not sure what to do about this. Also, my younger sister is only 15 and she wants to move out because she agrees with me that our father is a pedophile but theres nothing she can do. I don't want CPS to get involved because she's finally happy at school and doing better so it wouldn't be fair to make her leave when my father hasn't done anything to her.
I'm wondering what I can do about this. My boyfriend thinks I should move out as soon as poissible and then sue my father for pain and suffering because he's the reason I have such intense anxiety and control issues. Is that possible?
