Is there a time limit where someone can't be convicted of a sexual crime after the child has told someone?
My daughter told me 2 years ago that when she was 5 (she is now 12), my brother sexually molested her. I then contacted a psychiatrist, who then by law, had to turn it into dcfs. There was an investigation and everything pointed to my daughter telling the truth. The only problem...my brother now lives in another state. He refused to come back to be questioned and basically the case was dropped. Evidentally, Illinois will not send for him to come back. So, does this basically mean that justice will not prevail for my daughter? Does it have something to do with how much time had passed before she told me? Or does it have to do with the fact that he is in another state?
