Is there a statute of limitations on rape charges?

A situation happened about 2 and a half years ago with my daughter Kristi. For about three months or so she started to become reclusive and would experience crying episodes that lasted hours. We tried forcing her to go to therapy and things of that nature, but after a while things kind of got back to normal. While we were celebrating Easter, she broke down to us and confessed that she was raped during that time, which is why she was having those crying episodes. Is there something that can still be done even though it was 2 years ago?

    Definitely, there is plenty of time for you to file charges for rape. All the signs exhibited by her indicate something traumatic occurred to her, and if she can convince the authorities that a rape or sexual assault occurred, the charges will be filed.
