I am 29 years old. I was severely beaten and abused as a child by my mother as were my sister and brother (26 and 24). The abuse subsided for the most part when we each reached the age of 15-17. For me most of the memories were repressed, until recently. My sister has very clear memories of it. My question is, is there any recourse still available. I don't think jail is necessarily right for her as I believe that she could be easily listed as clinically insane, but is there a way to force an evaluation base on the things she did to us back then if she has received no counseling, continues to abuse drugs and alcohol (presumibly she is self medicating), and is still prone to violent outbursts but simply has no one to beat up anymore?
