I need to know what I can d to inform police in CA. about my cousin who raped me for years and raped my two younger sisters and a female cousin many years ago. I am afraid that he is doing this to young women in his area and I want to make sure he does not hurt any one else the way he has done to me and others in the past.

This thread is for posting resources. Gathering Place and Aftermath are good places to post questions.


Before reporting, I would urge you to call RAINN and learn what to expect when reporting. I would urge you to call several times so that you have a range of responses, or go to the online hotline.


I would also urge you to not take responsibility for changing another person's behavior. If you report, it can not be for the purpose of changing his behavior but for the purpose of healing. This is because the report may not result in jail time. The jail time may be short. He may continue offending against younger/weaker men in prison. He may do it again after getting out. He might skip bail and disappear. Not even the courts can control the conduct of an individual, fortunately or unfortunately.
