...to report a rape. I was raped 3 years ago and never reported it. I want to know if it's too late or not to get justice.

Did you have a rape kit done?

Likely too late. There is no evidence to collect. You have no proof unless it's on video.

I think it depends on the statutory time frame in your area. Where do you live? I would report it....they may not be able to do anything for you but if he did it once...I am sure it was not his last.

I reported my fathers abuse 10+ years after he touched me. It turned out that moved to my little sister and no one knew. He had been abusing her the whole time....Mine was to long but he went to court over my sister. 


Good luck

There's a time limit in every state. Will be hard with no rape kit. Your word against his if know who did it.

I didn't have a rape kit done. It was near a gas station. He was an employee and followed me. If the rape isn't on video I'm thinking him following me is.

Most states have a 3 year period. Plus without any evidence.. It's very difficult to prove or convict.

It would probably be seen as he said she said. Does he even still work there

Depends on statute of limitations in your state. You could help convict him in the case of someone else. They're usually repeat offenders

I'm not sure. Soon after it happened I called the gas station and found out his name was David though.

That would be your word against his, they would need dna evidence to convict him, circumstantial evidence is not enough. Unless the rape resulted in a pregnancy and you kept the kid.
